Market information systems seek to improve markets and inform policies through enhanced transparency and by providing market players with reliable information. The original studies presented in this issue of Cahier Agricultures look at the innovations of the second generation of market information systems (2GMIS) which developed during the 2000s. How can these diverse new models – which take advantage of ICT advances and the increasing organisation of market players – reach their objectives? With research from Kenya, Mali, Madagascar and Vietnam, among others, this issue also addresses the challenges in measuring the impact of MIS.
