India: Country Partnership Strategy (2013-2017)

Institutional Document | October 2013

This Country Partnership Strategy defines ADB's strategic approach in India for 2013–2017.

The Country Partnership Strategy is aligned with ADB's Strategy 2020 and comparative strengths, and India's Twelfth Five Year Plan. The new strategy also complements efforts by other development partners.

The strategy is guided by five basic principles: (i) respond to client demands, (ii) expand and incorporate lessons from past work that was done well, (iii) take advantage of ADB's strengths and align with Strategy 2020 priorities, (iv) avoid duplicating work done well by others, and (v) ensure innovation and value addition. It will also support three strategic pillars: inclusive growth, environmental sustainability, and regional cooperation and integration.
