The programmes discussed here are/were run mainly by DFID in its priority partner countries in the sub-Saharan Africa region:
- Kenya Market Assistance Programme (MAP), Growth and Employment in States Programme (GEMS),
- The BEAM Exchange (Building Effective and Accessible Markets),
- Jobs Compact Ethiopia and Dar es Salaam Urban Jobs Programme.
