Defining Replication, Scaling-Up, and Mainstreaming in the Context of the Pacific IWRM Programme: Identifying Priority Areas of Work for Work Plan Development
This document reviews the use of the terms âReplicationâ, âScaling-upâ, and âMainstreamingâ in the Project Document for the GEF Pacific IWRM Project. It shows that the contexts in which these terms are used in the project design, are often overlapping and used interchangeably with one another to describe similar activities. Dictionary definitions of the words âReplicateâ, âScaleâ, and âMainstreamâ were used to gain more insight into what the terms might exactly mean and how they can be applied to the Pacific Integrated Water Resource Management Programme or âIsland-style IWRMâ. Pacific IWRM definitions were prepared for each of the terms and are included for the consideration and amendment by network members. Opportunities for IWRM replication and upscaling are outlined and a âReplication and Scaling-up Toolkit for Pacific IWRMâ and template for strategy development are included in Annex 1 of the paper. The paper concludes with a brief questionnaire survey aimed at benchmarking current IWRM mainstreaming needs.
