Transforming Market Systems Activity (TMS)

About the Project

A market system is defined as “a dynamic space—incorporating resources, roles, relationships, rules, and results—in which private and public actors collaborate, coordinate, and compete for the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services.” In Honduras, the USAID-funded Transforming Market Systems Activity (TMS) seeks to understand, diagnose and address complex market behaviors and relationships that contribute to growing inequality and uneven resource distribution among individuals and businesses throughout various market systems.

LINC, in partnership with ACDI/VOCA (prime) and Nathan Associates, Inc. (sub), is currently implementing the TMS Activity that will pilot systemic solutions to facilitate more effective interactions across the enabling environment – including public and private actors, with a particular focus on improved linkages between firms – in order to develop market systems that are more competitive, resilient, and inclusive. LINC will lead efforts in the areas of systems thinking and capacity building to identify potential leverage points among actors in selected market systems and to enable those actors to be the drivers of change in creating more sustainable and inclusive business practices, improved incomes, and long-term economic growth.
