ALEAP & APIIC a step closer for planning 5 Industrial Parks for Wormen Entrepreneurs in Andhra Pradesh

24th April – 26th April 2017, Auroville, Tamil Nadu


A three-day training programme on “Planning of Sustainable Industrial Areas” was organized from 24th to 26th April 2017 by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH together with Auroville Consulting for the officers of Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) and members of Association of Lady Entrepreneurs of India (ALEAP). Trainers from GIZ, Auroville Consulting and WRI interacted with the participants in an experimental setup to ensure maximum knowledge gain.

The training programme was designed to induce strategic thinking into the participants for planning of new industrial parks while incorporating quality benchmarks. The key objectives of the training programme were:

  • Conceptualising the planning of the 5 industrial parks as ‘green”/sustainable industrial parks – visioning, type of industrial development, targets (investments, employment etc.)
  • Prepare an initial list of Quality Parameters (economic, environmental, social, legal compliances, infrastructure & services, management & processes) to be integrated into the site master plans, including infrastructure and special provisions needed to cater to women entrepreneurs
  • Come up with suggestions on modalities for plan preparation – e.g., teams from APIIC, ALEAP, consultants etc., support from GIZ
  • Next steps and Work Plan for accomplishing the planning of the five industrial parks 

The programme had a rich mix of theory and practice. The programme was designed to support the participants with improved knowledge on: site selection for industrial estates; site master planning of industrial estates integrating international standards; improved planning and designing of basic infrastructure in industrial estates; and retrofitting strategies for existing industrial estates (including waste and wastewater management). The practical sessions/group work included:

  • Group work on understanding benchmarks for achieving quality and identifying gaps in master plan of new industrial parks
  • Group work on identifying provisions to be made at the site identified at Nellore and Godavari district
  • Action planning towards preparation of site master plans

The workshop concluded with an interactive plenary session in which the participants discussed in details about the existing planning process and way forward to develop site master plan for newly acquired sites for development of women industrial parks.
