Adaptive Management for Market Systems

Event Date: 
Mar 13, 2019
2:30 pm to 4:30 pm EDT
Market Systems Symposium (in partnership with RTI)


The Market Systems Symposium, in partnership with RTI International, invites you to a facilitated discussion on adaptive management for market systems. The discussion will focus on a growing body of tools and tactics that practitioners are employing to manage what can be a tricky landscape of donor needs, organizational expectations, as well as emerging best practices of systems thinking approaches that demand effective adaptation. Expect to hear about a number of ways in which projects and donors have succeeded in fostering improved adaptive capacity, which will seed further discussion at the Symposium in April and lead to a robust set of recommendations and tools available to the industry. 

The session will cover the following topics:

•    Adapting indicators and targets
•    Adapting procurements and partnerships
•    Adapting teams

The session will be facilitated by Liz Eckert, RTI International, and Mike Field, EcoVentures International. They will be joined by Ken Smarzik, of USAID/Haiti’s Leveraging Value Chain Enhancement (LEVE) project, amongst others, to contextualize the discussion with on-the-ground insights and strategies. We welcome all to participate in this facilitated discussion.
