India and ADB

In the Spotlight

Overview

While continuing to support India’s endeavors to reduce poverty through infrastructure-led growth, ADB's India program has developed and matured over the years in terms of its sector, geographic, and thematic coverage, in line with the government's evolving priorities and increasing focus on inclusive and sustainable growth.

Besides continuing its support for core infrastructure sectors, such as energy, transport, and urban services, ADB is now engaged in innovations in infrastructure finance and improving water resources management, agribusiness infrastructure development, and skills development.
