Market Analysis Guidelines


Market Analysis Guidelines

Markets play a paramount role in enhancing people's livelihoods and promoting food security. WFP tailored a food security framework  having markets as one of the elements that should be tackled within the overall food security analysis. While this was originally much aligned to household analysis, with the shift from food aid to food assistance, WFP embraced a full set of additional instruments to protect lives and livelihoods that go beyond merely recognizing the relevance of markets in achieving households’ food security. This page houses a list of analytical instruments, technical guidance papers and reviews as well as the framework for market analysis within WFP.
