The Price Monitoring, Analysis and Response Kit (MARKit) was developed to guide practitioners through the steps to monitor markets during the implementation of food assistance programs. It includes guidance…
- on price monitoring and analysis,
- to ensure we’re “Doing No Harm” to local markets, and
- to enable staff to make any necessary programmatic changes in response to changing market conditions.
It is intended for use in both emergency and development contexts.
MARKit consists of four components:
MARKit Manual – The manual guides staff through six steps of price data collection and analysis.
Worksheets – MARKit includes 10 worksheets to accompany the manual and provide additional practice on specific concepts.
Worksheet 2 – Market Integration (Worksheet 2 – Français)
Worksheet 4 – Key informant interview questions (Worksheet 4 – Français)
