UNICEF India Guidelines on Piloting and Scaling-up of Innovations and Good Practices

Piloting and scaling-up of innovations and good practices is a critical component of the UNICEF India Country Office’s (ICO) work.In the case of India, where UNICEF resources are limited compared to national budgets, piloting is one of the key ways that UNICEF cooperates with the Government of India (GoI) and seeks to influence GoI’s own policies and programmes.

Results are demonstrated on a small scale with a view to leveraging GoI funding and advocating for replication of successful approaches on a larger scale.

The purpose of these guidelines is to improve ICO’s approach to piloting and scaling-up of innovations and good practices. In order to achieve better results for children and  women, and to support accelerated progress towards the Millennium Development Goals in India, a more consistent and effective ICO-wide approach is needed – ensuring a shift from small-scale pilot interventions to large-scale initiatives that can really have an impact on poverty2.

These guidelines are designed to support catalytic interventions across all programme components within the context of the UNICEF 2013 – 2017 Country Programme Action Plan and beyond.
