USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)-funded activities are increasingly applying market-based approaches to a wide range of interventions, including those related to agriculture, entrepreneurship, employment, and financial inclusion. Throughout the course of 2020, SCALE received numerous requests from partners for market-related support. Due to the varied nature of these requests, SCALE held a series of consultations with BHA staff and implementing partners to understand their priority challenges and needs related to this technical area. This document summarizes the findings from those discussions and lays out a preliminary path forward for SCALE to address these needs in its remaining two years of programming.
