CRS Approach to Market Systems Development for Housing Solutions

CRS is recognized for supporting families and communities throughout the full continuum of an emergency response - from relief to recovery - to ensure that people not only have the support to survive in the wake of a disaster but have the foundation to thrive long after it. With the increased frequency of disasters and conflict, CRS is looking to meaningfully and efficiently build off its decades of experience in emergency response to transform its approach to meet the heightened needs of the most vulnerable. By leveraging housing markets throughout its emergency response and development programming, CRS and its partners can support a greater number of vulnerable families and communities as they recover and rebuild their lives. Especially in disaster-prone areas, stronger links to housing markets can reduce their vulnerability to future disasters given their greater access to and means for safe, resilient rebuilding.
