Cambodia-LIBROS: Learning to Improve Book Resource Operation System: Evidence Ecosystem Diagnostics Final Report
This Systems Thinking workshop involved the implementation of eight main activities: issue prioritization, issue mapping systemigram, strategy prioritization, evidence prioritization, stakeholder and idealized evidence network mapping, evidence ecosystem relationship analysis, mapping critical success factors, and research contextualization.
A common understanding of what “evidence” for the Cambodian primary level book supply chain means is not in place. Regardless of various barriers, there is an emergence of diverse but scattered actors and mechanisms facilitating evidence generation and use, but there remains a scarcity for the evidence translation. Accessible and user-friendly knowledge of the ideal evidence ecosystem for the supply chain and its essence is vague and puzzling. Obtainment of interest and buy-in from actors to build and maintain the relationship is a promising bedrock and steppingstone.
Formulation and implementation of different mechanisms (of relevant, feasible, and within regular intervals) and investment (time, human and financial resources) to raise awareness and bring about discussion and collaboration between actors are significant for the better development and progress of the Cambodian primary level book supply chain evidence ecosystem.
