Scaling up projects

Why?

The Paris Peace Forum is an incubator that advances the most promising governance projects.

It scales up global governance projects to demonstrate that it is still possible to improve the collective response to global challenges in a deteriorated international environment.

What?

10 projects are selected among 121 showcased at the annual event to benefit from a one-year support.

These projects present the highest potential of development while tackling crucial global governance issues at the same time.  

Who?

These projects are selected by a jury composed of members of both the Scale-up Committee and the Selection Committee applying the following criteria: Quality of the project; importance and relevance of the project to current global governance issues; feasibility of the project or its potential for progress; level of actual support as well as diversity of origin and of organization.

How?

All year round, these projects benefit from customized support for their advocacy, communication or organizational development activities. The results will be assessed during the next edition. 

This support is implemented by a Scale-up Committee composed of 10 experienced and influential personalities in their field of activity.
