Abstract: The present policy paper focuses on the second main policy domain at Hivos: Economy and Sustainable Development. This domain focuses on the economic aspects of development within the perspective of social and ecological sustainability. Activities implemented within this policy have one main target group: poor and marginalised groups in developing countries. Given that this group is integrated in the market to a considerable extent, this policy domain and the present policy paper use a market-based approach. Many issues in the policy area “Economy and Sustainable Development” have an important civil society building or empowerment component. The paper discusses issues from a market perspective.
