Market monitoring and trade analysis in Darfur: ‘localisation’ in practice

Between 2010 and 2016 a community-based Market Monitoring and Trade Analysis (MMTA) project in Darfur aimed to fill a critical information gap.

Over a seven-year period, through market monitoring and in-depth trade studies, the MMTA project aimed to deepen analysis and understanding of patterns of trade and markets in Darfur for key agricultural and livestock commodities, and thus to inform and influence programming to support livelihoods, and to prepare for the eventual recovery of Darfur’s economy.
