Launch of the Scaling Up Community of Practice website

View this article as a pdf

In November 2020, the Scaling Up Community of Practice (CoP) website was launched. The website aims to provide a platform for experts and practitioners to exchange knowledge on approaches to scaling up development interventions, enhance collaborative efforts and promote the importance of scaling up considerations to achieve global development goals. The CoP, launched six years ago, now has a 700 strong membership base representing over 200 organisations including development organisations, operating non-governmental organisations, foundations, universities and think tanks. The CoP has nine thematic working groups each with their own page on the website: nutrition, education, health, agriculture, social enterprises, youth employment, climate change, fragile states and monitoring and evaluation.

The Nutrition Scaling Working Group (NSWG), launched in August 2019, includes 150 members from various advocacy, research, implementation and donor organisations within the nutrition sector and aims to fill a gap in the nutrition community by providing a forum for members to consider critically how to sustainably scale nutrition programmes. The NSWG webpage focusses on knowledge sharing of research, case studies, systems and methodologies for driving nutrition interventions towards scale, the identification of gaps and lessons learned from within the nutrition community and other sectors, the creation of guidance checklists and the development of analytical tools such as cost-benefit tools. The CoP will gradually transition communications from email to the website including job postings and real-time entries.

The NSWG is an open group – new members passionate about the science of scaling up are welcome to join.

You can register to join the CoP here and find out more about the Nutrition Scaling Working Group here.
