MetKasekor Handbook is comprised of six stages of guidelines for a PDAFF to implement MetKasekor Model at their target locations. These include: Identification (Stage 1); Demand Creation Meetings (Stage 2); Field Showcase (Stage 3); Commercial Demonstration (Stage 4); Annual Meeting (Stage 5); and Promotional Meetings with Private Companies (Stage 6). It should be noted that although in MIGIP’s implementation and Figure 1 involvement with the three departments at the national level and the provincial administration is strategic, this Handbook aims to focus on the PDAFF’s interaction with farmers, service providers, and—especially—the private sector. The Handbook is structured into stages that make it easy for readers to follow. Each stage is broken down into detailed steps, based on the sequence of activities. In addition, guidance on how to conduct each step and necessary tools are also elaborated to ensure proper implementation of the model.
