Roundtable on Resilience and Market Systems
How can the international development community come together to make market systems more resilient? Please join us on July 10 as we engage in a roundtable discussion about the intersection of resilience and market systems. Led by Greg Collins, director of the USAID Center for Resilience, our panel of experts will present perspectives developed through their research and writing on ways in which resilience can be assessed at the level of market systems. Organized and hosted by Chemonics International, the roundtable aims to highlight recent research and experience while sharing learning with the broader development and research communities. Sub-topics will include resilience of households, communities, agricultural value chains, and regional commodity markets. A discussion will follow brief presentations by the panelists.
The event will be held in the Northwest Rotunda of the Ronald Reagan Building, and will be livestreamed. Refreshments will be served after the event.
