What is PCMMA?

by PCMMA Core Team

Dear all, 

Oxfam GB and IRC would like to share with you a short summary document about the Pre-Crsis Market Mapping and Analysis approach. 

Market analysis used in pre-crisis contexts, maps the functionality of the current market system and then models (or forecasts) the functionality of the market system after a crisis. Undertaking market analysis as part of preparedness and contingency planning, could significantly improve the readiness to respond to crises. 

This will ultimately contribute to improving the preparedness of agencies to design appropriate and market sensitive responses in a timely fashion, with a minimum of delay. However, undertaking market analysis before a crisis has even more potential. By identifying the capacity and constraints of forecast critical market systems, pre-crisis market mapping and analysis can support the design of responses that address these constraints and that could mitigate the effects of a crisis.
