The Market Systems Symposium 2023 (MSS) will convene practitioners of market systems development from around the world tio explore cutting-edge research, innovative strategies, and real-world application in this dynamic and engaging forum. Given the significant impact of climate change, conflict, and food insecurity on our world today, the core themes for the conference are climate change and adaptation, conflict-affected contexts, and food security and food systems. Considerations that will be focused on across each of these core themes are:

  • Household and market systems resilience 
  • Financial market systems
  • Migration and urbanization 
  • Water and energy systems
  • Trade

Join to explore innovative solutions, network with peers, strengthen capacity and engage in community dialogue. The conference will take place in person with select components online in English, French, and Spanish with an optional pre-MSS in-person Study Tour and online training.
