e-Consultation: Innovations in Measuring Impacts in Market & Financial Systems: Rethinking the Current Paradigm

Markets and financial systems are complex and constantly changing. Even after thorough analyses and strategic planning, these changes are unpredictable and sometimes surprising. At the same time, project interventions often yield unforeseen or unanticipated outcomes. The dynamics and non-linear behavior of market systems create specific challenges for understanding change promoted by development interventions.

Join market development practitioners, donors, and complexity experts in a 3-day e-Consultation and webinar to explore cutting-edge thinking about effective ways to measure impacts of market and financial development interventions. The discussion will help define principles on which to base the further development of more systemic M&E frameworks. We highly encourage you to review the discussion paper here.

In addition to the online forum, join us for a live webinar on October 24 at 10-11:30am EDT. To participate in the webinar, click here to register. Please note- while the webinar is part of the 3-day online discussion, you must register for the webinar independent of the e-Consultation.

Day 1 October 23, 2012 Exploring Systemic M&E

Day 3 October 25, 2012 Next Steps

One of the key challenges of systemic monitoring frameworks is to answer the questions:

  • How do project interventions change structural characteristics of the market system?
  • How does this translates to the level of the beneficiaries?
Effective monitoring systems must make use of approaches that embrace the dynamic and unpredictable nature of markets. Alongside demonstrating project-level impacts, systemic monitoring frameworks should deliver relevant information in real time to help project managers navigate unforeseen changes and adapt their interventions.

This discussion will feed into an emerging process of learning and innovation, which will be highlighted in the opening plenary of this year's SEEP Annual Conference.
