The Feinstein International Center provides advisory support to the Darfur Development and Reconstruction Agency (DRA) – a national NGO in Sudan – to set up and manage a community-based market monitoring network in the Darfur Region. The goal of this market monitoring initiative is to deepen analysis and understanding of the shifting patterns of trade and markets in Darfur on an ongoing basis for key agricultural and livestock commodities; identify how livelihoods and the economy can be supported through trade; and identify peace-building opportunities through trade. This report is of a training workshop for Community Based Organizations, Local Non-Government Organizations and other partners in El Geneina, West Darfur and reflects the ongoing training and capacity building of the market monitoring network which has recently expanded to West Darfur in Year 2.

Margie Buchanan-Smith introduced the hierarchy of markets in Darfur:
(1) primary markets - village markets, usually held once per week
where farmers and pastoralists bring their produce to sell to small

traders and agents of larger traders

(2) secondary markets - intermediate town markets, often held twice
per week, where small traders trade with larger traders

12

(3) urban/ tertiary markets in the major towns which operate on a daily
basis and are the point of export for many of Darfur’s agricultural
commodities and livestock eg El Geneina

Participants once again divided into four working groups, this time to map the main

trade routes pre-conflict for different commodities traded in West Darfur, and to
answer the two questions:
(1) How have these trade routes changed during the conflict years?

(2) Why have these trade routes changed?

The main trade routes in West Darfur were mapped for the following commodities:

(i)

for cereals

(ii)

for mangoes

(iii)

for groundnuts from Masterei, and;

(iv) for cattle traded in Beida and Fora Boranga markets
