On February 6th, 2018, Palladium’s Peter Douglas and Collins Apuoyo spoke at a webinar on “making markets work for refugees” organised by BEAM.
The webinar explored the role of the private sector in responding to humanitarian crises using projects, including Propcom Mai-karfi, which are working with displaced people and host communities. It shared ideas and conclusions on the feasibility of market-based approaches for labor inclusion and livelihood resilience, and how markets can be leveraged so that refugees and host communities can rebuild their livelihoods. ”
Propcom Mai-karfi and our refocus on working with internally displaced persons and markets in the northeast was one of the three projects highlighted globally.
