Lennart Woltering
International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT)

Lennart Woltering, a Scaling Catalyst at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), assists scientists and development practitioners in expanding the impact of their work beyond project boundaries.  He advocates for a shift in mindset around scaling from “reaching many” to include sustainability, responsibility and systems change. Passionate about translating academic research findings into practical application, he developed the Scaling Scan tool that helps users quickly identify bottlenecks and opportunities for scaling. Beyond CIMMYT and the CGIAR, Lennart advises a range of development organizations, alliances and donors on scaling strategies.

Lennart chairs the Agriculture and Rural Development working group of the International Community of Practice on Scaling, a community of more than a hundred donors, scientists and development experts. He works for the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) and is a core member of the GIZ/CGIAR Task Force on Scaling.
