The course aims to support policy makers, development organizations and professionals in their new role as market facilitators.
It is an introduction to how markets can be used as tools to alleviate poverty in a sustainable manner. The topic will be approached via two related questions, namely:
- How can the poor effectively engage in market development?
- How can the poor access markets better with their products?
