Market systems development (MSD) programs seek to influence incentives and relationships among actors to affect how public and private actors behave, helping important market functions to perform more effectively and encouraging businesses to innovate, adapt, grow and serve wider populations. Increasing MSD programmes in the field of private sector development like Elan 1.2, a DFID funded MSD programme in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, are taking a closer look at who is included these wider populations and who is excluded and placing more attention on purposefully including frequently excluded groups like women and people with disabilities.
