The participation of non-academic actors is considered essential …
The participation of non-academic actors is considered essential in this project since it is part of the perspective of opening up four Cambodian public partner universities to its socio-economic environment in order to provide better employability prospects for their students in the field of green business.
However Cambodian public universities are not yet well positioned and would be delighted to get external expertise to ensure in the next decade an adequate response to the demands of the labour market in this field. The participation of non-academic actors is therefore essential.
The participation of non-academic actors in GREENCAP is conceived so as to make them intervene at all stages of the project: the project design, the project management as well as the evaluation of the project and the analysis of its impact.
At the project implementation stage …
At the project implementation stage, non-academic partners will be involved in both the decision-making and operational levels.
In terms of decision-making, some representatives of the private sector (director of a green business oriented SME), of the public sector for the environment (Councilor of the Municipality of Phnom Penh), representative of the education sector (Under-Secretary of State and Advisor to the Minister of Education) and representatives of civil society (representative of regional NGO for climate change) have already participated in the kick-off meeting and some of them will be member of the professional committee. In this regard, they will be in charge of proposing recommendations in order to ensure a decisive role throughout the project and pilot the “green growth expertise” aspect of the project
At the operational stage …
At the operational stage, non-academic actors will intervene in all Work Packages, whether macro, meso or micro level. Their participation is already planned within the framework of Green Conference, job fairs, Green Debate Competition, and Green Olympiad. Their participation is also be prioritized in the creation of new courses.
Finally, non-academic actors are being asked for the qualitative evaluation during the project as well as the estimation of its impact.
