Briefing Note: Using Commercial Pathways to Scale Up Agricultural Technologies

This briefing note provides a summary of the key lessons and recommendations from five country studies examining the scaling up of agricultural innovations through commercial pathways in developing countries. The United States Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Food Security (USAID/BFS) commissioned these studies to understand how the Agency can use donor projects to achieve greater scale and long-term commercial sustainability. It is intended for the staff and implementing partners of donors, and for other members of the international development community interested in scaling up.
