Promoting Inclusive Markets and Financial Systems
Webinar: Building More Inclusive Markets by Integrating the Extremely Poor
This is the first webinar in the series, "Towards Resilient Livelihoods for Very Poor Households." The series focuses on recent examples from field practice that focus on “push” strategies targeting very vulnerable populations and helping them build a minimum level of assets for eventual engagement in markets. At the same time, in each webinar we examine whether existing markets or “pull” strategies provide viable opportunities for these populations. Learn more about the series here.
Integrating extremely poor producers into output markets is a project design and implementation challenge. This webinar will explore the question, “What are proven push and pull activities that integrate the extremely poor into output markets?” The extremely poor are those persons living on less than $1.25 per day.
In the webinar you will learn about:
- Designing components for pathways for the extremely poor to be better integrated into output markets
- Elements of push-pull programming methodologies for improving household nutrition and dietary diversity
- Positively impacting gender dynamics to improve household income through engaging in output markets
The webinar speaker will share on several projects that work with the extremely poor in output markets including project in Haiti and Malawi.
