Joint Rapid Assessment of Markets (JRAM) - 2019

Subject/Objective: 
The Joint Rapid Assessment of Markets (JRAM) was developed and launched by the Cash Working Group (CWG) in April of 2017 in order to establish a harmonized and collaborative mechanism for conducting market assessments in areas of Iraq newly accessible to humanitarian actors. The CWG serves as the mandating body for the assessment,with REACH Initiative acting as the technical partner and CWG partners carrying out all field-level data collection. Specifically, the JRAM aims to determine the impact of a protracted crisis on a market in terms of infrastructure, security and the supply chain; to gather information on the priceand availability of goods; and to gauge the ability of traders to cope with a hypothetical surge in demand to help determine the feasibility of cash and market-based programming within the assessed market.
Methodology: 
The assessment employed a qualitative research method adapted from the Rapid Assessment of Markets (RAM)developed by International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and relied on a Kobo-based mobile data collection tool customized to each of the three respondent groups – retailers, wholesalers and consumers.
