We are happy to share with you a new product that was developed in the context of Indonesian-German Development Cooperation and the “Innovation and Investment for Inclusive Sustainable Economic Development (ISED)” project in Indonesia:

The handbook on “New ways of building partnerships across sectors".

This handbook describes how successful projects between public sector, private sector and civil society can be co-created. It should be of interest for everyone who works in the area of private sector cooperation, TVET or employment promotion. It contains a prototype for a new way of cooperating and building partnerships across sectors, with public and private sector and civil society engagement.

Why this handbook? This handbook provides an overview of a training designed on the same topic and delivered for ISED by Christian Koch, Impact Hub Berlin and Impact Hub Jakarta. The theoretical background presented on the topic of building partnerships with the private sector is nurtured with practical examples and lessons learned during the ISED pilot in October 2018. Our hope is that it encourages and simplifies replication, in Indonesia and elsewhere. The handbook starts by introducing Inclusive Business models and industry partnerships in TVET as fields of cooperation between ISED and the private sector (chapter 2). Subsequently, chapter 3 provides an overview of some key concepts influencing the design of the training on new ways of building partnerships across sectors. Based on this conceptual background, chapter 4 gives a step-by-step guidance for replicating the training, reflecting on the lessons learned during the pilot in October 2018 and providing information on the necessary tools. Concluding, overarching lessons learned are summarised (chapter 5), detailed sector information, a model director’s script and selected templates are provided in the annex.

This product would not have been possible without the contribution of quite a number of people. We would like to thank everybody who was involved in the development of this product - and for you as our partners, colleagues and friends: Feel free to use this product in your daily work and develop the model further. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Best regards,
