Market systems programming seeks to make markets more competitive, inclusive, and resilient. Recent advances in concepts for how to define and assess market systems resilience push the boundaries of traditional market measures. A first step is thinking through risk analysis to help demystify the concept of market systems resilience and present considerations for how to move forward.

On May 20th, Marketlinks, Agrilinks and speakers Kristin O'Planick and Tatiana Pulido hosted a webinar exploring what USAID's Bureau for Resilience and Food Security means by market systems resilience, why it matters for our programming, and what tools are currently available to support measurement.
