Country partnership strategy for India for the period 2013-2017 (English)

India is uniquely placed to help reduce global poverty and boost prosperity. The country has the largest number of poor people in the world, as well as the largest number of people who have recently escaped poverty but are still vulnerable to falling back. India’s encouraging results in recent years on the dual challenges of fighting poverty and boosting prosperity justify strong support for India as a key part of the global effort to bend the arc of history by accelerating the decline in poverty. India’s per capita income remains low, and its development challenges are deep and complex. As the country strives to bring about quicker and deeper changes, this strategy lays out an approach for the World Bank Group to support India in achieving even more ambitious results in the near future. Aware that World Bank Group finances will always be modest compared to India’s challenges, that support can be a catalyst for change at this crucial time. For that reason, this strategy makes the case for continued high levels of World Bank Group financial support for India.
