Market Assessment in Cox’s Bazar

Subject/Objective: 
The primary objective was to provide a detailed overview of the current situation of the market system (retail and wholesale) serving the affected areas. A set of specific objectives were also detailed, including to: 1. Understand the current supply situation for main commodities and constraints; 2. Explore the existing demand situation (e.g., purchasing power issues, accessibility); 3. Assess markets’ capacity to meet increased volume demands; 4. Summarise information to support organisations in design of their market-based interventions.
Methodology: 
Following a one-day training, 16 enumerators (7 women, 9 men) from five FSS partners performed the interviews between 8-18 October. The trader survey collected data with tablets using forms designed with Kobo Toolbox. MMC and FGD data was collected on paper forms and entered using a web form designed with Kobo Toolbox. Data was cleaned and analysed using R version 3.4.1
