About the Course
The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) will run a Market Assessment Tools Training course covering  core concepts and tools in emergency market assessment in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on 22nd - 26th May 2017.

This is a 5-day training designed non-economists who may participate in a market assessment with a humanitarian objective. This training focuses on how to measure market performance and how to select appropriate market tools and guidance for an assessment. The fourth day includes a field-based assessment component to apply some of the various skills learned during the week. See the course overview for more information
