The Handbooks are a detailed step-by-step guideline for the implementation teams while carrying out the interventions. The Handbooks are produced with the experience in MIGIP. Some of the Handbooks are also produced for the project partners to be used in carrying out the intervention. In MIGIP, we took the strategy to brand the interventions hence, the different names of the Handbooks.
4S Handbook
The 4S Technology Market Segmentation or, for short, the 4S Model is a go-to-market strategy developed by Swisscontact Cambodia specifically for private sector players to bring new agricultural technology/machinery to farmers. There are 4 stages in the 4S Model which are: S1 – Search, S2 – Set up, S3 – Service Workshop, and S4 – Showcase.
MetKasekor Handbook
MetKasekor Handbook is comprised of six stages of guidelines for a PDAFF to implement MetKasekor Model at their target locations. These include: Identification (Stage 1); Demand Creation Meetings (Stage 2); Field Showcase (Stage 3); Commercial Demonstration (Stage 4); Annual Meeting (Stage 5); and Promotional Meetings with Private Companies (Stage 6). It should be noted that although in MIGIP’s implementation and Figure 1 involvement with the three departments at the national level and the provincial administration is strategic, this Handbook aims to focus on the PDAFF’s interaction with farmers, service providers, and—especially—the private sector. The Handbook is structured into stages that make it easy for readers to follow. Each stage is broken down into detailed steps, based on the sequence of activities. In addition, guidance on how to conduct each step and necessary tools are also elaborated to ensure proper implementation of the model.
InGuider Handbook
InGuider Handbook, developed by Swisscontact, is a reference document aimed at assisting universities to implement a better internship program, using the InGuider model. The model, as was the project, is primarily targeted at implementation at the faculty level in the fields related to agricultural engineering. The model is based on the experience that FAE gained during the InGuider project, and the Handbook represents a consolidation of the lessons learned from that project. Throughout the Handbook, the unit running the program is referred to as “Faculty”, but the model—with appropriate care—may be expanded to the university level, or even for other fields of studies.
HoKa Handbook
Hospitality Kampuchea (HoKa) is a training programme aimed at supporting skills development in developing or emerging tourism destinations in Cambodia. HoKa was designed and implemented by the Mekong Inclusive Growth and Innovation Programme (MIGIP) during 2018-2020 as an “initial phase”, partly funded by the Laguna Foundation and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). HoKa was built on the training materials and the practices applied in the Skills Development Program Phase 1, which is a mandated project from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and implemented by Swisscontact.
The HoKa programme initiated and implemented a dual-approach in-house training for various hospitality occupations within targeted destinations. The long-term objective is to implement HoKa training in other destinations in Cambodia and make it a cornerstone of work-based vocational training in the hospitality industry.
4P-T Handbook
The purpose of this handbook is to provide step-by-step guidelines to development organizations that want to promote sub-national tourism destinations through a public-private partnership platform. The guidelines are modelled on MIGIP’s experience of enhancing destination management structure in Kampot, Cambodia from 2017 to 2020.
