India: Country Partnership Strategy (2018-2022)

Institutional Document | September 2017

This Country Partnership Strategy (CPS), 2018–2022 for India aims to support the government’s goal of faster, inclusive, and sustainable growth accompanied by rapid economic transformation and job creation. ADB assistance is articulated through the three strategic pillars of the CPS: boosting economic competitiveness to create more and better jobs, providing inclusive access to infrastructure networks and services, and addressing climate change and increasing climate resilience.

The CPS has five principles to enhance value addition, maximize impact, and sharpen the focus of ADB operations in support of India’s priorities. In line with these, ADB operations will (i) be driven by front-end strategic studies to identify and prioritize transformative investments and associated policy advice; (ii) adopt a synergic approach across sectors and themes; (iii) align assistance with the government’s strategies and flagship programs, as well as its commitments to the Sustainable Development Goals; (iv) progressively enhance engagement and forge partnerships with low-income states; and (v) integrate capacity development as an operational priority.
