- Understanding transport markets: efficiency of transport markets and means to improved market access.
- Understanding urban food markets: how can such markets best supply the urban poor consumer with good quality food at affordable prices.
- Understanding the linkages between different markets transport markets, credit markets, labour markets, food markets - and making linkages in these markets across the formal and informal sectors.
