Despite their increasing numbers and size, the impact of non-governmental organisations’ activity on development is usually localised and often transitory. In consequence, NGOs need to analyse the strategies by which they may be able to ‘scale up’s their contribution to development. This article summarises the proceedings of a recent Workshop at the University of Manchester, England, which explored such strategies through a large number of case-studies. While it is not feasible to produce prescriptions from these materials, a number of lessons and key issues can be identified, and are highlighted in the article.

This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
