Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Madhya Pradesh, located in central India, is the sixth most populous state with 78 million people. It is a low-income state with per capita income at about 70% of the national average. During FY2012 FY2018, Madhya Pradesh recorded impressive economic growth averaging more than 8.0%, higher than the national average of 6.9%. Agriculture underpinned the recent growth with near double-digit growth (9.3%), in sharp contrast to the overall trend in India. The industry sector has also emerged strong, growing at an average of 7.8% since 2015. The service industry has shown steady growth as well, averaging more than 7.0%. Madhya Pradesh is part of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor and hosts numerous industrial growth centers along major city clusters. The state's industrial promotion policies have boosted large investments in manufacturing, such as automotive and auto components, electronics, and food processing. To convert vibrant investments into sustained economic growth, Madhya Pradesh requires a well-trained workforce to meet current and emerging skill demands across the core industries. The state, however, faces challenges in the supply of skilled workforce.
Impact By 2026, employment and income prospects for young men and women in Madhya Pradesh increased (National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship 2015)

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects For civil works at the GSP and ITIs, potential environmental impacts will be site-specific, reversible, and occur mostly during construction. During operation, training facilities will require adequate water and waste management. Initial environmental examination reports, including environmental management plans, were prepared for each of the project sites and disclosed on the ADB website. The implementation status of environmental management plans will be monitored and reported to ADB semiannually.
Involuntary Resettlement The project will have no land acquisition or resettlement impacts.
Indigenous Peoples

Madhya Pradesh's population is composed of 21% scheduled tribes and 16% scheduled castes. The project is expected to have a positive impact on the livelihood of indigenous communities, as the project includes specific targets to ensure they benefit from enhanced skills training.

The DOSD has prepared an indigenous peoples plan to ensure that all indigenous groups in the state will have access to the project's improved skills training at participating ITIs and the GSP. The project will engage civil society organizations in outreach campaigns to recruit and mobilize prospective beneficiaries from indigenous groups. The project will also operationalize career counseling centers at ITIs and the GSP to offer career guidance and facilitate graduates' search and transition into employment.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design During project preparation, a range of stakeholders have been consulted, including ITI students, prospective students, parents, and teachers, to understand the values and challenges of ITIs and other TVET institutes in the state. Consultations also focused on the specific challenges and opportunities for women and socially disadvantaged groups in accessing skills training programs. Industry groups have been consulted through focus group discussions and surveys to examine the performance of current ITI programs and key areas for improvement. The inputs from stakeholders have been incorporated in the project design, TVET promotion and trainee mobilization strategies, career guidance programs, GESI action plan, and indigenous peoples plan.
During Project Implementation During project implementation, communities will be engaged to promote enhanced TVET programs at ITIs and GSP. Nongovernment organizations at local communities may be engaged as part of awareness raising and mobilization drives, especially targeted at women, socially marginalized groups, and people with disabilities.
