Working with water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) markets in humanitarian emergencies requires an understanding of market systems, and the interactions between users and these systems. Aid responses can significantly affect local markets for WASH supplies and services –and aid that is not market-aware may cost more, put suppliers out of business, raise prices and undermine recovery.

This overview, and the WASH and Markets in Crisis series linked to it, describes the impacts of crises on market systems, and introduces the benefits of market-based programming.
