Markets and Trade in Darfur

The Feinstein International Center provides advisory support to the Darfur Development and Reconstruction Agency (DRA) – a national NGO in Sudan – to set up and manage a community-based market monitoring network in the Darfur Region. The goal of this market monitoring initiative is to deepen analysis and understanding of the shifting patterns of trade and markets in Darfur on an ongoing basis for key agricultural and livestock commodities; identify how livelihoods and the economy can be supported through trade; and identify peace-building opportunities through trade. Seven community-based organizations (CBOs) plus DRA are monitoring 15 markets across North Darfur, including three markets in IDP camps, on a weekly basis. Five CBOs plus DRA are monitoring 11 markets in West Darfur, including two markets in IDP camps. Five CBOs plus DRA are monitoring 10 markets in Central Darfur. By the end of 2014, the market monitoring network will be extended to include South and East Darfur, thus covering the entire region.
