Are you struggling to establish, run, or improve a local business in the tourism sector within Southeast Asia? Is your work closely connected to the success of such businesses?

Perhaps the ILO C-BED toolkit can lend a helping hand.

Developed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in collaboration with ASEAN, this toolkit aims to support entrepreneurs across the sub-region to improve and upgrade specific small and medium business in a number of tourism areas using the Community-Based Enterprise Development approach, aka C-BED.

The C-BED initiative is a low cost, innovative training programme designed to support skills development and empowerment in local communities for improvements in livelihoods, productivity and working conditions.

Based on a trainer-less, peer-to-peer approach, the programme requires only few resources. It is thus flexible, easy-to-use, yet highly effective.

The toolkit is available in English and local languages in Bahasa (Indonesian), Khmer, Burmese, Lao, and Vietnamese and tailored for the following sub-sectors:

  1. Destination Management
  2. Aspiring Entrepreneurs in Tourism
  3. Handicraft Makers
  4. Smallholder Farms
  5. Market Vendors
  6. Homestay Owners
  7. Guesthouse Owners
  8. Restaurants/Food Vendors
  9. Transportation Management
