India : Madhya Pradesh Urban Services Improvement Project
The program preparatory technical assistance (TA) will identify poor and vulnerable households through an intensive consultative and participatory process. The TA will also identify extent to which government programs are effectively utilized and their impact in terms of poverty alleviation. Using both quantitative and qualitative approach the TA will determine community willingness to participate in subprogram planning and implementation. The TA will also examine options of pro-poor designs, governance and resultant subprogram addressing pro-poor growth. The income and non-income dimensions will be addressed by setting up affordable charges for all beneficiaries and by maintaining and providing standardized urban service levels to all population. All program components are coordinated for more efficient service delivery, therefore lowering the cost of urban service provision and contributing to the poverty reduction and inclusive growth strategy.

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The proposed program objectives are consistent with the Madhya Pradesh Vision 2018 and CPS' strategic objectives, focusing on areas that articulate the need for infrastructure development including access to basic services and encouraging environmental sustainability. The proposed program contributes to the national poverty reduction strategy and the CPS by improving access to improved water supply, and sanitation management facilities in smaller ULBs of the State.|

|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||The main stakeholders are the residents of about four service clusters (approx. 2 million people) including beneficiaries, affected people especially women, poor and vulnerable households. Other stakeholders include representatives from government agencies, private partners/entities responsible for project design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation (consultants, contractors, NGOs, etc.) and donors. These stakeholders will be involved in consultations during the TA to ensure participatory approach in program design and strengthen inclusiveness.|
|During Project Implementation||Participatory process will be used to ensure an inclusive program design. Consultations will be undertaken to provide program information and seek stakeholders' views and preferences especially with users to ensure affordability, access and reliability of urban services. Measures will be taken to include and promote gender equality in the program design so that women have equitable opportunities and participation in decision-making process.|
|Consulting Services||Several individual consultants have been mobilized and have been working closely with the Executing Agency in undertaking advance actions such as (i) recruiting the PMC and DSC, and (ii) procurement of civil works packages.|
