Report: HSDT releases timely ‘Increasing Impact in International Development’


Alliance magazine


‘Efforts to bring successful results to scale have, for the most part, fallen on stony ground. Rather than consolidating gains and developing assets further, donors shift from one ‘magic solution’ to another with no reliable mechanism to learn from their failures.’

Throughout their time funding successful pilot projects, the H+S Davidson Trust noted the international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) had no strategy to ‘scale up’ projects to benefit more people. This compelled them to investigate why this was, and what can be done about it.

Based on a series of in-depth interviews and feedback from a short survey, this report – released today in collaboration with Barry Knight and Jigsaw Research – focused on these objectives:

  • What are the biggest challenges facing the International Development sector that limit impact and effectiveness?
  • What are the different initiatives, solutions and changes that are most likely to have a positive impact?
