Market functioning in Turkana district, Kenya

Research reports

The aim of this study is to consider the feasibility and appropriateness of cash-based interventions in a chronically food insecure area in Kenya (Turkana district).

The analysis is conducted from an economic perspective focused on the functioning of the market. In particular, despite the strong pastoralist character of the Turkana economy, attention of the study is focused on the market of food in general and of cereals in particular, which is almost entirely dependent on trade inflows from neighbouring districts or countries.
