Planning workshop prepares researchers to scale out agricultural innovations

Representatives of three teams whose proposals were successfully awarded funds from the CGIAR Research Program on Roots, Tubers and Bananas (RTB) Scaling Fund, along with program leadership and technical experts in scaling, came together in Nairobi, Kenya, in March.  The aim of the workshop was to equip the teams with the tools and knowledge needed to plan and implement strategies to take their innovations to scale. Participants left the workshop challenged with new ideas, new ways of addressing challenges to their scaling projects and a better understanding of how to scale up their technologies with the support of the tools provided.
