The SEEP Network Annual Conference

The SEEP Network’s 2015 Annual Conference will serve as a platform to highlight this evolution while acknowledging the important challenges still before us. Under the dual theme of Inclusion and Resilience, together we will explore strategies that are extending the frontiers of market development. The productive engagement in market systems of still-marginalized populations including women, poor producers, and otherwise vulnerable or disadvantaged households requires innovation. This includes new methods of financing, sustainable business models, and mutually beneficial partnerships. Promoting resilience is central to this mandate. The ability to respond to shocks is essential to ensuring long term gains for poor households as well as the sustained transformation of markets.
