Why Join?

Congratulations! You have joined the Markets in Crises community of practice. You are now part of an online community of over 2,200 humanitarian practitioners with a diverse range of skills and experiences in market-based approaches to crises around the world. The Markets in Crises discussion forum promotes open sharing, learning, and experiences and does not promote one tool or approach over another. To participate in the forum, use your email address or the username that you chose along with your password to enter this site and browse the library. You will find a rich resource of market assessment reports, training information, and tools including the EMMA Toolkit for download for free!

Remember that you can start a discussion thread as a quick and easy way to participate by:

• Sharing your field experiences, market analysis reports, or programme case studies • Asking a question for your colleagues or seeking advice/support • Pasting a link to a favorite market assessment tool or a recent article or learning event • Advertising market-related consultancies and job openings

There are a couple of simple guidelines to keep in mind:

Be Respectful to All: Please remember to avoid any abusive or rude responses. We want to encourage everyone to participate and not be reticent to contribute a thought or idea. Avoid Off-topic or Casual Replies: We encourage everyone to make relevant posts and professional comments. Please avoid all off topic posts which should be sent by personal email to whomever you are addressing. We also strive to converse in a professional manner so that everyone, including non-native English speakers can follow and contribute to our conversations. BE CAREFUL of the ‘REPLY’ button! Remember that if you simply hit ‘reply’ to an email coming from the Dgroup, you are actually selecting ‘REPLY ALL’. Your response will go to every member in the forum – that is currently hundreds of practitioners in our community -- and growing! To respond personally to the sender, please click FORWARD and enter the person’s email address into the TO line. The Markets in Crises forum is administered by the SEEP Network. If you have any questions or need a bit of help to get started, please feel free to contact the moderation team at

Thanks again for joining our community of practice!
