Market monitoring

Operational standards

Markets are consistently monitored, beyond price monitoring

Key Actions

  1. Monitor/identify a partner who monitor market-related indicators that, at minimum, capture the price changes, volume of transactions, avaibility of goods and the ability of the beneficiary household to access the market
  2. Determine the frequency with which monitoring should occur by considering the robustness of the initial market assessment, the expected volatility of the market and the relative scale of the programme compared to local markets
  3. Ensure sufficient resources for regular and timely market monitoring
  4. Use the results of market monitoring to assess the appropriateness of the intervention and to make programmatic changes if required
  5. Share market monitoring data with coordination groups
