These guidelines provide information for research and development institutions to help them improve their scaling-up strategies for natural resources management, by reducing the time between technology development and its widespread use and benefit by farmers.
The Guidelines have been developed as a result of a two-phase approach. Phase I focused on identifying positive and negative experiences from case studies in Bolivia, Nepal and Uganda. Phase II focused on working with collaborating organisations in Bolivia to develop existing dissemination strategies into scaling-up strategies considering the lessons learnt in Phase I, helping to validate these lessons and build scaling-up capacity within Bolivia.
