report Start Network

This document is designed to make it easier for agencies to raise Start Fund anticipatory alerts for cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons, or to submit Start Fund project proposals when an alert has been activated.

A review of recent humanitarian interventions that support local markets in emergency contexts revealed a limited scope and breadth of this type of activity. While many agencies show good creativity and understanding of market systems in emergencies, most activities are in the form of small grants to traders, to help them recover and to facilitate access to markets for disaster-affected communities. Such support includes small and large, formal and informal traders, but does not often go beyond grants, although sometimes trainings and other “soft support” are provided.
