Hi all - I am Mike Albu from the BEAM Exchange. We are a platform for knowledge exchange and learning focussed on market systems approaches in international development, supported by UK's DFID and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC).
I am late to this great conversation but want to really thank Gerry, Richard and Pamela for the excellent Growing Together report. It's the first time I have seen a convincing work that speaks to large corporates about 'market systems' in a language that business can understand.
Please explore the BEAM site - www.beamexchange.org - for loads more resources, case-studies and guidance about market systems development. I look forward to show-casing some of the examples shared in the discussion today.
Thank you for all concerned
