What is the role of public-private partnerships in India’s aid-for-inclusive-development strategy?
The international aid system has undergone a lot of changes in recent years. And in the wake of financial crises, donor countries’ mechanisms of development assistance in poor countries are driven by economic and political motivations. From being one of the world’s largest recipients of foreign aid in the mid-1980s, India has evolved into a net donor. This paper reviews India’s aid strategy under the growing consensus for the decentralisation of resources and more equitable access to make development more inclusive. The author studies the role of the Indian private sector in its foreign aid strategy; through the collaboration in its outsourced aid projects.
