Webinar: Working with WASH Markets to Prepare for and Respond to Emergencies

Wednesday 22 March 2017 14:00 – 15:30 GMT / 10:00 – 11:30 EST / 21:00 – 22:30 Bangkok

With funding from US-Aid’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), Oxfam has been working on a multi-country program with the objective to enable governmental authorities and humanitarian relief agencies utilize market assessments as the basis for more effective and efficient emergency response.

Oxfam’s Global Humanitarian Team invites you to join a webinar on Wednesday 22 March 2017 during which we will present innovations in the pre-crisis market mapping and analysis developed and tested during the course of the program. We will describe our experiences from Bangladesh, Indonesia and Zimbabwe focussing on how the assessments have been used to support emergency preparedness and responses.

Based on these experiences, we will present key lessons learnt that we consider important from the perspective of WASH programme design and delivery, contingency planning and partnerships with market actors. These lessons have relevance to WASH sector specialists, those responsible for multi-sectoral humanitarian programming, as well as those working on post-crisis economic rehabilitation and longer term development programs.

The webinar offered participants the opportunity to contribute to the discussion on the country experiences, some of the main learnings and the proposed stepped approach towards market engagement as the basis for market analysis and programming.

If you would still like to provide feedback please send to Katie Whitehouse (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Carol Brady (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by Friday 31st March.

You feedback will be used to finalise the strategy documents attached as pre-read materials.

We are particularly interested in your interpretations of the 'Stepped Approach' towards market engagement.

Feedback to date has been that:

“It is a useful table to find out where we are and how we can move up the ladder and specific to NGO and country program too.”

“I think this is very useful when moving the way we do business towards a market-based programming. This is a process within an organisation and as your report mentions, takes time. I also like your point about keeping tools simple. Complicated tools are very off putting to implementers.”
