Coordinating National Scaling Efforts for Food Systems Transformation
The new food systems framework and the imperative to address multiple objectives adds a tremendous amount of complexity to all aspects of the scaling process. This session will examine the key question of how parallel scaling efforts by different organizations, projects, and initiatives could be made less independent and fragmented at country level, while facilitating greater engagement and leadership by country partners in both public and private sectors. The session will examine case examples from successful scaling – and discuss the lessons that might be applied to scaling in a cross-sectoral, food systems context. Speakers will include representatives from Ministries of Agriculture, CGIAR, civil society, the private sector and funding organizations.
