Scaling Up in Agriculture, Rural Development and Nutrition

As governments, donors, and other key actors deepen their commitments to improve food security and reduce poverty, they are increasingly focusing on how successful development interventions can be scaled up, i.e., expanded, replicated, and adapted to new and different contexts, for greater and sustained impact.  The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has assembled the document "Scaling Up in Agriculture, Rural Development, and Nutrition". This is a compilation of 20 policy briefs that contribute to better understanding the different pathways for scaling up, the drivers that push the scaling up process forward, and the spaces that enable initiatives to be scaled up. The briefs draw on the experiences of a wide range of actors to explore:
 

  • The role of rural community engagement
  • The importance of value chains
  • The intricacies of scaling up nutrition interventions
  • The lessons learned from institutional approaches
  • The experiences of international aid donors.
