ACDI/VOCA has implemented
18 large-scale market system
development programs benefitting
3 million participants.
Economies function better when market actors come together to solve their own problems and co-invest in solutions that allow for widespread benefits. That is why we work to facilitate effective cooperation and healthy competition among individuals, communities, companies, and governments to build productive, equitable, and durable local economies and nutritious food systems
Beginning with analysis, we look beyond the symptoms to uncover the root causes of poor market performance. Together with market actors, we develop a strategy for changes that a system needs. We align our resources and collaborate with local partners to facilitate that change. Along the way, we identify partnerships and monitor, evaluate, learn, and adapt as we discover new information that evolves our strategy.
