During Programme Year Two, beginning May 2013 to end April 2014, Samarth-NMDP has laid strong foundations for sustainable change across a range of agricultural markets, as well as recording the first signs of impact at the farm-level. Overall, working across eight rural sectors, evidence of progress towards systemic change has been recorded in five market systems, where Samarth-NMDP has successfully coaxed investment or change in how the private or public sector are doing business. At the same time, stakeholder engagement to influence more systemic and sustainable approaches to market development has gathered pace. The programme also began to extract and document learning and to play a role as a thought leader on market systems development, both in Nepal and globally. In 2013, Samarth-NMDP became the first programme to be audited during the first year of operation against the DCED Standard for Results Measurement.
