Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Project 2 is categorized B for environment under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS) (2009), given the civil works involved in upgrading three TTCs. Potential environment impacts are likely to be site-specific and short-term during construction that can be mitigated. The initial environmental examinations and environmental management plans have been prepared according to the SPS and the Environment Assessment Review Framework.
Involuntary Resettlement The small ethnic community peoples plan has been prepared in compliance with the SPS. Project 2 is categorized C for involuntary resettlement, since neither land acquisition nor relocation of the people is foreseen; all TTC upgrades will take place within the existing premises.
Indigenous Peoples Project 2 is categorized B for indigenous peoples safeguards under the SPS. It will not have any negative impacts on small ethnic communities but will generate positive impacts through increased training opportunities and targeted financial support.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Various groups of stakeholders were consulted during program preparation, including industry representatives, TVET institutes and regulating body, labor market researchers, private and nongovernment organizations, and development partners. The program has also sought inputs from other stakeholders, such as trade unions, TVET graduates, parents, and international employers, and secondary and higher education institutions to improve the quality of training.
During Project Implementation Regular consultations are being carried by TVET providers, industry groups, and communities to assess the performance and relevance of training programs. Inputs from employers are also sought regularly to explore the types of additional skills programs demanded. Adequate participation of civil society organizations in project implementation is being ensured through constant dialogue, workshops, training programs, and dissemination of findings from monitoring and evaluation.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants will be selected using ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). Since the investment program is being financed by ADB's Special Funds resources, ADB's member country eligibility restrictions will not apply to this investment program.
Procurement Tranche 2 project engages industry associations and PKSF through single-source selection, using the same performance-based contract and business plans developed under Project 1. For new industry-specific managerial training programs, selected universities have signed the MOU.
