Training has underpinned our work since we were established and is the activity that connects all our work. Training is where the learning from research, implementation and advisory work finds a coherent and useful form, relevant to others trying to make sense of complex development challenges.

Our biannual Making Markets Work Training Programme focuses on how to make development more effective, achieving greater impact, inclusiveness, scale and sustainability. We have trained approximately 1,800 people from more than 100 countries to date.

On a highly selective basis, we also offer bespoke training courses on specific aspects the market systems development approach, including monitoring and evaluation. We have also delivered programmes for academic summer schools.

Thank you again for organizing and running such high quality training. The M4P projects case studies demonstrated real impacts on millions of poor people. I am convinced that this approach should be the way forward to make sustained impact that could be brought to scale.
