Download the resource

Participatory Market System Development (PMSD) is Practical Action’s approach to designing and delivering inclusive markets programmes that reduce poverty on a large scale and protect the environment.

Christian Aid has adopted this approach and has now trialled it in over 15 country programmes. Programme staff have also been trained in Emergency Market Mapping Analysis, a similar process to PMSD designed for the humanitarian context.
