Building the evidence base for pre-crisis market-based WASH programming

Side event: Wednesday 12th October 2016

Convened by Oxfam in partnership with CRS, PSI and OFDA

Engagement with market actors is increasingly being recognised to be a key part of humanitarian programming as these actors are well positioned to provide services and distribute commodities to affected communities. At the same time, cash transfers are becoming more widely utilised to enable these same communities to access markets of goods and services that they urgently need.

In order to build local, national and international stakeholder interest and buy-in to the concept of market-based programming, there is a need to develop and test a robust evaluation and monitoring framework to support market-based programming in the target countries and subsequently to build the evidence-base for market-based programming.

The objectives of the session were to

a) Present current thinking in relation to monitoring and evaluation to support market-based programming in the humanitarian WASH sector.

b) Consider strengths and weakness of different approaches for market-based programming at different stages of the emergency cycle.

c) Consider synergies with the programmatic approaches and monitoring and evaluation frameworks adopted by the development community to support more resilient WASH services.
