How can we increase the impact and uptake of research? Validated RNRRS Output.


This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS) programmes.

Summary for Project title: R7865: Scaling-up strategies for pilot research experiences - a comparative review.

A demand-driven framework for scaling-up research findings is making inroads into poverty and improving livelihoods. It identifies the key strategies that must be put in place—forging strong networks and partnerships, building institutional capacity and ear-marking appropriate funding— and points out that research must be genuinely demand-led, and that researchers must be made more accountable for research impacts. The framework was used in the development of the DFIDNRSP's strategy for communication and scaling-up, and adopted by the World Bank, CIAT, ILRI, FAO, and the Kenya Forestry Research Institute. It is used by USAID projects in the Andes, South- East Asia and West Africa, and by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in Nepal.
