Marketlinks in 2021: Year in Review
This December, Marketlinks is highlighting the best of 2021, including the standout learning and knowledge-sharing content that has resonated the most with our community.
In 2021, Marketlinks teamed up with Bureaus and Offices across USAID to bring you the market systems development (MSD) and economic growth perspective on central development themes, from health markets and climate finance to LGBTQI+ inclusion in programming and advancing youth employment. We also launched The Market Corner, a bimonthly blog series offering fresh perspectives on MSD topics to inform development leaders’ work.
All month long, we’ll be sharing the top articles, resources, and webinars from Marketlinks in 2021, to shine a light on the market-led development learning that stood out among our community of practice. Stay tuned to learn more about the central role that MSD and economic growth approaches play in achieving lasting, market-led development outcomes.
