Market System Selection Tool

Over the years, conservation organisations have made significant investments in ‘alternative livelihoods’ to try to compensate people for restricted access to natural resources and/or to incentivise behavioural changes to reduce threats to biodiversity. However, rigorous evidence for positive impact on both well-being and biodiversity is lacking.

Participatory Market System Development (PMSD) is about facilitating transformations in market systems to make them more sustainable, efficient, inclusive and equitable.

This 'Market System Selection Tool' provides guidance on how to identify which market systems have the most potential to make positive contributions to both livelihoods and biodiversity
