Doing business in Dadaab, Kenya
The International Labour Organization (ILO) and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) developed the Approach to Inclusive Market Systems (AIMS) to facilitate the development of market-based interventions for the economic inclusion of refugees and other forcibly displaced.
Focusing on Dadaab, this study provides a market system analysis for interventions aimed at enabling the self-reliance of refugees and host communities, and thereby contributing to a broader local economic development (LED) agenda.
Two complementary pieces form the basis of this report:
- A socio-economic assessment and context analysis that seeks to lay out the challenges and opportunities that Dadaab offers
- A rapid value chain analysis that aims to identify sub-sectors and value chains that have the potential for inclusive growth.
