The Latest From Market Systems and Partnerships: Semiannual Report
The Feed the Future Market Systems and Partnerships (MSP) Activity is pleased to share its latest semiannual report, covering the period from October 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Take a look to learn more about MSP's recent activities and results, including:
- The launch of two partnership facilities in southern Africa and Cambodia; combined, MSP's three partnership buy-ins represent $11 million in funding currently approved to coinvest with the private sector via performance-based partnerships. A third partnership facility, in the Solomon Islands, is in the design phase and will launch later this year.
- The finalization of MSP's initial learning agenda, which covers six technical themes. This period MSP initiated seven learning activities across four prioritized streams, including a brief on synergies between private sector engagement and market systems development, a market systems resilience community of practice and a rapid evidence scan on the return on investment from social inclusion for the private sector.
- Reflections on challenges and iterative learning, a snapshot of key results to date and updates on key activity management and operations aspects.
