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. IFPRI’s 2020 Vision Initiative commissioned a set of 20 policy briefs, edited by Johannes Linn, to better understand 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.
