Scaling Readiness is an approach that supports scaling of innovations and was developed as an integral part of the CGIAR Research Program on Roots, Tubers and Bananas (RTB) that is supported by CGIAR Fund Donors. The development of Scaling Readiness was led by Wageningen University and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in close collaboration with the International Potato Centre (CIP), Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT).
