Description The program is the response of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to the government's vision of improving the quality of its human resources to sustain Cambodia's economic development and enhance its competitiveness. This will be achieved by supporting sequenced reforms aimed at improving the effectiveness of upper secondary education (USE). The program will (i) support initiatives to improve access to, quality of, and relevance of USE; and (ii) strengthen institutional capacity for planning, management, and delivery of education. While the policy reforms will be applied nationwide, most of the project activities will be implemented in seven disadvantaged provinces.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy While there was substantial progress in increasing access to basic education over the last 10 years, significant challenges remain at the USE level. The USE gross enrollment rate declined from 32.9% (30.1% female) in SY2010/11 to 25.1% (26.0% female) in SY2015/16. This dismal performance is more particularly pronounced in disadvantaged provinces, with recorded average gross enrollment below 20% as of SY 2013/2014. Grade 12 dropout rates reached an all-time high of 45% (42% female) in SY 2015/16, an increase of 34.9 percentage points (32.2 percentage points for females) from SY 2011/12. Completion rates for USE remained low at 20% in SY 2014/15. Through the USESDP, ADB will help the government address the problems of low access, low quality and relevance of upper secondary education and the lack of institutional capacity to plan, deliver and manage education services. USESDP is aligned with ADB's country partnership strategy, 20142018 for Cambodia which in turn is in line with the governments priorities on expanding access to, and improving the relevance and quality of, secondary education.
Impact High-quality human resources developed (Education Strategic Plan, 2014- 2018)

The manual comprised of five sections and was approved by Minister on 10 June 2019.

" NIE-C extracted some contents from this SBM for the in-service teachers training. After the arrival of NIE-I, they went to visit schools in few provinces to explore why something does not work at the school level. After the trips the NIE-I team developed a module called _ change management_. Unlike the previous SBM material, the new developed materials by NIE-I focuses on the practical on three areas: (i) leading for change, (ii) resource utilization and (iii) strengthen network of SRS.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project will include the construction of school buildings and/or classrooms and teacher housing. While environmental impacts are anticipated during construction, these are principally confined to noise, dust, and vibration, and safety of students and school and/or training center staff. Impacts will be minor, localized, temporary, and could adequately be addressed and covered in the civil works contract awards. The project is classified as category B for environment. An environmental assessment and review framework and an initial environmental examination have been prepared. The policy actions in the policy-based loan component will not have any potential environmental impacts.
Involuntary Resettlement

The involuntary resettlement category is C. The program as a whole will not entail involuntary resettlement issues. The project activities, including construction of additional USS buildings and teacher housing, will not require land acquisition nor restrict access to lands and/or people's livelihoods since school campuses occupy large tracts of land with adequate room for future expansion. Due diligence has confirmed that targeted project areas have land titles and/or certificates indicating ownership of land by the school or by the MoEYS. Based on an

assessment of the policy actions, the policy-based loan component will not have any potential involuntary resettlement and indigenous peoples issues.

Indigenous Peoples The project is classified as indigenous peoples category B. Ethnic minority students and staff make up a large percentage of the project's target schools in at least five of the seven disadvantaged provinces. In accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009), measures to ensure that students, teachers, and school administrators in ethnic minority areas are included in the project design in lieu of preparing a separate ethnic group plan.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Various stakeholders including parents, community, teachers, students, school directors, and MoEYS officials and staff were consulted and engaged in the design of the program. Development partners supporting policy reforms and projects were also consulted to ensure complementarity of support.
During Project Implementation
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants will be recruited according to ADBs Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The terms of reference for all consulting services are detailed in Section D.
Procurement

All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).

For goods, ICB procedures will be used for goods valued at $1,000,000 or above; national competitive bidding (NCB) procedures will be used for goods valued below $1,000,000 but equal to $100,000 or above; and shopping procedures will be used for goods valued below $100,000. For works, ICB procedures will be used for works valued at $3,000,000 or above; NCB procedures will be used for works valued below $3,000,000 but equal to $100,000 or above; and shopping procedures will be used for works valued below $100,000.

An 18-month procurement plan indicating threshold and review procedures, goods, works, and consulting service contract packages and national competitive bidding guidelines is in Section C.
