Abstract: Progress towards resilient and sustainable development is continuous and constantly shifting as circumstances, contextual experiences and systems change. In many countries there are humanitarian and development activities taking place at the same time, yet our approaches within these areas can still be quite separated in terms of planning, implementation and monitoring. Yet traditionally quite different populations benefit from humanitarian and development interventions. Interest in the role of markets in both humanitarian and development contexts continues to grow based on the understanding that markets need to work for marginalised and vulnerable populations. Vulnerability will have an impact on the way that people can interact with market systems and trying to understand markets in relation to both personal vulnerabilities and vulnerable and fragile contexts requires a new approach, linking humanitarian and development actions more systematically.
