Strategy for Sustainable and Inclusive Tourism Growth in Madhya Pradesh

Project Overview

The Government of Madhya Pradesh has requested World Bank support in preparing a report to inform an overarching development strategy for the state. The objective of the report was to identify priority areas for policy action and reforms for ensuring sustained and inclusive growth towards becoming a middle-income state with substantially reduced poverty and improved social indicators. Specifically, the report aimed to emphasize (i) environmentally sustainable agricultural growth, (ii) alleviation of constraints to manufacturing and services to boost job growth, (iii) identification and reduction of human development constraints, and (iv) creation of fiscal space through improved revenue mobilization. The report identified and reviewed key binding constraints and use, to the extent desirable and feasible, innovative approaches to analysis.
