Join the SCALE Award's 3-part “Resources Showcase” Series for an overview of what we did and learned over five years of working with the food security community on seed systems, markets & livelihoods, and resilient agriculture. We’ll make sure you leave each session knowing the tools, training materials and research studies we created, what we learned, and how you can continue to find and engage with these resources going forward. This event will be held in English with French interpretation.
Resource Showcase 2: Markets & Livelihoods | November 2, 2022 | 9:00-10:15am ET
Given the multiple overlapping crises that many countries are facing, aid practitioners need to be prepared to adapt their livelihoods and market programming and move beyond standard models. SCALE created tools to help USAID’s implementing partners to apply familiar concepts to new contexts and populations. In this webinar we will discuss four of the most popular resources for markets and livelihoods programming around youth, employment, emergencies, migration, and access to finance. If you missed any of them, this is your chance to learn about these new tools and approaches, and ask questions of technical advisors on how to contextualize them.
We will highlight:
- Market-based Programming Framework (for using market approaches in emergencies)
- Using market systems approaches for rural employment
- Introduce the new online course on Private Service Provider for savings groups
- And launch a new think-piece: "Livelihoods in Migration Contexts"!
- Additional Resources
- Markets and Livelihoods Resources
- Market Systems Development in Rural Employment
- Private Service Provider Online Course
- Markets in Crises Resources
- Applying Adaptive Management in Emergencies Resources
- Livelihoods in Migration Contexts
- Webinar: Harnessing the Development Potential of Labor Migration
- Webinar: Rethinking Migration: Challenge or Opportunity?
The SCALE Award is a USAID/BHA-funded capacity strengthening, research and learning award ending in November 2022. Over the past five years, SCALE has supported BHA-funded agriculture, natural resource management, and alternative livelihoods activities in emergency and non-emergency contexts to enhance their impact, sustainability, and scalability. SCALE is implemented by Mercy Corps in collaboration with Save the Children.
