The key persons were namely ex-Migrant workers who are currently working in Small, Micro, and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Ciwaru Village, Sukabumi Regency; youth actors at Palangpang & Geopark; local farmers association at Curug Sodong, Ciwaru Village; and Chief of Badan Kerjasama antar Desa (BKAD) or Inter-village Cooperation Agency.
Meanwhile, on the 24th-25th November 2021, The SIP workshop with UNDP Indonesia was launched. The workshop was held to convey and discuss findings related to the challenges and opportunities of developing Sustainable Tourism in the form of a portfolio of solutions. Moreover, the goal was also to analyze the intersection with government, development policies or programs, and other stakeholders.
In conclusion, the implementation of the Co-design activity aims to provide a collaborative space for stakeholders, both at the regional and provincial levels, and at the local level regarding the design of the initiative and is expected to be able to produce a portfolio of solutions that are most suitable for the integration of the three priority sectors formulated in the form of the Social Innovation Platform-Business Model Canvas (SBMC). Moreover, it is also expected that the project could be prototyped for each initiative.
