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.
