Shifting currents: India’s rise as a development partner

This paper examines India’s development partnership programmes, its key features and instruments, and how these might challenge conventional development norms and practices. The scope of this paper is focussed primarily on India’s development partnerships as manifested through the grants, loans, and lines of credit it extends to other southern nations, administered primarily by the Development Partnership Administration housed within the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, and the Export Import Bank. The final part of this paper situates Indian development partnerships in the broader context of the changing architecture for global development.
