This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID’s 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Summary for Project title: R8381: Institutionalised scaling-up and
uptake promotion of outputs from soil and water management research in
East and Central Africa.
A compilation of the constraints limiting uptake and scaling-up of
natural resources research results in Eastern Africa is helping policy
makers get a better idea of these barriers. Awareness-raising products
are explaining to researchers their role in the process. Training
materials, including a learning manual, are helping build the capacity
of researchers to influence institutional strategies and also design and
implement plans for communication, sharing, promoting uptake, and
scaling-up of their own research outputs. These materials are now used
extensively throughout Eastern and Southern Africa, including in Angola,
Botswana, Burundi, Comoros, D.R. Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya,
Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda,
Seychelles, South Africa, the Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia
The CD has the following information for this output: Description,
Validation, Current Situation, Current Promotion, Impacts On Poverty,
