Programme Design Questions for Scaling up Development Innovations for Transformational Change30 Nov 2012
Scaling up development innovations to achieve transformational change is about enhancing development effectiveness. Various evaluations have suggested UNDP and other development partners to support scaling-up of successful pilot initiatives to achieve efficient, effective and sustainable development results. How can UNDP country programmes systematically promote scaling-up?
This pamphlet provides UNDP country offices with some key questions for reflection and intends to support building a scale up vision and strategy into the programme design. Revisiting the key questions during the implementation and conclusion stages is always advisable as well, to help steer through the changing environment. The set of questions is applicable for programmes hosted in any practice area of UNDP. In fact, a multi-practice joint effort is often most desirable for scaling up.
