The Community of Practice (CoP) on Scaling up Development Outcomes, led by Larry Cooley (Management Systems International) and Johannes Linn (Brookings Institution), organized a webinar on the topic of monitoring and evaluating the institutionalization process during scale up. The August 12th session featured guest speakers from two prominent organizations working on scaling community-based health interventions – Last Mile Health and Living Goods. The session, which was the second in a series of four, focused on perspectives around monitoring and evaluating the process by which initiatives effectively become institutionalized in government programs.

The cases of large-scale interventions that are followed through the series come from the education and health sectors, with the intention of identifying lessons that span sectoral silos. The third session highlighted the donor perspective on these issues on September 20th and featured a panel of experts. The workstream will be featured in a plenary session during the upcoming CoP’s annual workshop scheduled for November.
