Adverse environmental impacts are unlikely since the Project focuses primarily on human resource development. Rehabilitation and renovation of existing infrastructure may lead to temporary impacts during construction, which can be mitigated. No land acquisition is being funded under the Project. Laboratory design, particularly of science laboratories and chemical engineering facilities, takes into consideration the best industry practices and relevant Government and ADB guidelines and procedures.
The Project supports women's participation in higher education through science and engineering programs, targeted scholarships for women, and by supporting existing study centers for women. Scholarships are also being provided to economically disadvantaged students.

The overall objective of the Project is to improve the country's international competitiveness and help achieve sustainable economic growth, leading to poverty reduction on a gender, social, and geographically equitable basis.
The Project comprises of two interrelated parts: (a) strengthening the governance and management capacity of the public and private higher education system, improving student equity, and supporting a retraining program; and (b) strengthening existing study programs and supporting new study programs in priority disciplines in higher education, upgrading women study centers, and strengthening community and industrial relations.
The manufacturing industry was the principal engine of growth during Indonesia's period of rapid development where GDP averaged seven percent. Recovery, and long-term, sustainable economic growth and the opportunity to achieve prosperity by the poor, will require strengthening of exports dependent on high levels of skill, technology and capital . Technological change has reduced the relative returns to unskilled labor and countries that rely on unskilled labor and natural resource based goods are likely to face declining living standards. It is therefore imperative to raise workforce skill levels in order to raise living standards in the open competitive global market. Accordingly, government intervention is required to create and strengthen the capability of the national education system to deliver knowledge and skill development through education and training while at the same time encouraging the development of linkages with industry to support the strengthening of capability formation through specific technology-based experience.
In addition to requiring increased numbers of skilled technicians and professionals, renewed economic growth for national prosperity will also require highly skilled managers to support a strengthened business infrastructure and supporting legal framework.
As skills are subject to constant change, education systems must constantly upgrade skills taught consistent with emerging needs, therefore strong linkages with the employer community are required. Likewise, the delivery of transferable skills by the education system to graduates who can be classified as multi-skilled provides the required base for continuous upskilling that is essential for business to remain globally competitive. Global competition requires global quality standards uniformly applied and assured throughout the system. Accordingly, the higher education system must provide equal access regionally, socially and on a gender basis.
