What can you procure locally in Monrovia? What is preventing more local procurement in Port-au-Prince? How many female entrepreneurs are operating in Kabul? In order to answer these questions and many more, buyers and suppliers need access to independent and trustworthy information about the local market.

In each of its Marketplaces, Building Markets researches and publishes reports in order to fill this gap in information about the local market. These reports help buyers understand the business landscape including what is available on the local market and help suppliers understand where demand is likely to grow.
