Global Learning Process for Scaling Up Poverty Reduction and Conference in Shanghai May 25-27, 2004
2 Scaling Up – the Key to Reaching the MDG More than half the people in developing countries live on less than $2 a day. Even as levels of absolute poverty fall, disparities of income, health, and education widen.
3 Scaling Up – the Key to Reaching the MDG Sustained results in countries such as China, pockets of success in India, elsewhere in Asia, and in other countries of the world provide hope that scaling up is possible Learning what works and what does not is key: This is the main purpose of the Shanghai learning process
4 The Challenge – for Countries and Development Partners Take successful programs and expand, adapt, and sustain them in space and time—this requires learning from what works and what does not
5 Key Elements of the Conceptual Framework I.Four hypotheses on scaling up: Learning, experimentation, and communication Institutional innovation and implementation Leadership commitment External catalysts
6 Key Elements of the Conceptual Framework II. Importance of management over time and across levels of government Programs sustained through changes in government Intergovernmental relations and management
7 Conference in Shanghai and Global Learning Process Learn from successful and failed efforts to scale up Case Studies (70+) Share experiences and insights into the process of scaling up Global Dialogues (video and online – 20+) Field Visits (Indonesia, Uganda, Yemen, Brazil, Turkey, India, Bangladesh and China) Draw out common elements of successful programs that have allowed them to be taken to scale Conference in Shanghai
8 Purpose of this Dialogue Discuss draft case studies, and approaches to “scaling up” and provide feedback to the authors Dissect the process of scaling up Help build a regional community of learning.
9 Main Questions 1.Was there scaling up? How did it happen? 2.What factors contributed to scaling up? 3.What lessons can be drawn from these case studies?
