think-piece-cover2ncsdsThe paper was co-authored by Jack Cornforth, Stakeholder Forum; Ingeborg Niestroy, PublicStrategy for Sustainable Development; and Derek Osborn Stakeholder Forum. It begins by exploring the governance of scaling up, looking at different factors which affect the transferability of successful sustainable development practices from one place to another; then looks at examples of mechanisms for scaling up, suggesting some key factors to be taken into consideration by NCSDs looking to improve coordination between national sustainable development priorities and international sustainable development concerns; and ends by suggesting some practical activities the Global Network could facilitate to assist NCSDs with scaling up efforts.
