Graduation Pilot: Market Assessment and IGA modeling


FSD Kenya and CARE Kenya jointly designed a project for implementation in Laisamis, Marsabit county, applying the graduation approach. The objective of the project is to test use of market based approaches to building the livelihoods of poor households. Based on a review of the broad characteristics of the potential market-systems identified as both “technical viable” and “socially feasible”, the goat market system was prioritised for a more detailed assessment in 2016. The results of the assessment are outlined in this briefing paper.
