Inclusive Plug Episode 17: What does It Mean for a Program Applying Market Systems Development to be Regional?

In partnership with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency and other implementing partners, Helvetas is leading a regional inclusive and green economic development program in Eastern Europe, South Caucuses, and Western Balkans. While designing the program, we asked ourselves ‘what a regional program would look like’. We’ve been much more interested in the value addition of such a regional program than doing more of the same initiatives that Helvetas has in different countries. So, for this episode we’ve interviewed 3 experts who have experience in working for such regional programs or initiatives.
