The Sustainability Thread in India’s Development Partnerships

Author’s Abstract:

This brief analyses the alignment between India’s development partnerships since Independence, and sustainability goals. It conducts the examination using three phases of India’s development partnerships—i.e., Phase 1, 1947-1990; Phase 2, 1991- 2008; and Phase 3, post-2008—and finds that the country’s development cooperation agenda has historically incorporated objectives of sustainable growth. This pattern would continue throughout the different phases of its development partnerships, all the way to the era of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) beginning in 2015. The brief explores the key trends in India’s development partnerships in the remaining ten years for the international community to work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030.
