A declaration on scaling impact from the Global South with IDRC

Supported by  IDRC,

Project brief

Building on the rich discussions we had with IDRC’s Scaling Advisors during the scalingXchange 2020, OTT is supporting the drafting of a declaration on scaling research impact in the Global South, from the perspective of southern researchers and innovators. The statement aims to contribute to strengthening the field of scaling science by:

  • enhancing visibility of a southern evidence base and southern voices on scaling science; and
  • providing a starting point for a conversation among actors involved in scaling in the Global South and beyond to draw out lessons and practical experience in scaling impact to inform future practice.
