The Minimum Requirements for Market Analysis in Emergencies builds upon work already undertaken relating both to market analysis (CaLP research ‘Markets in Emergencies’) and standard setting and answers this question: “What is the minimum market analysis required at various stages of the project cycle?”

The Minimum Requirements have been developed on the understanding that ultimately market assessments should guide response analysis and programme design. The requirements however do not presuppose that any given type of intervention is preferred and have therefore been developed in view of catering to a wide range of possible interventions. The guidance limits itself to the issues that are key to market assessments, and does not cover certain considerations that may also be critical to a complete response analysis.
