Inclusive growth

Over the past two decades, India's contribution to global economic growth has doubled to almost 15 percent. Further, income poverty levels have declined, resulting in 133 million people being lifted out of poverty in the past 20 years. However, nearly 300 million people still live in extreme poverty. UNDP supports government efforts to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development that leads to transformational change, bringing about real improvements in people's lives and leaving no one behind.

Our programmes aim to secure livelihoods through skills trainings, support protective legislations and access to entitlements, provide policy research and evidence, build capacity and promote South-South cooperation to eradicate poverty, and ensure government's anti-poverty policies are more inclusive.

Our goals

UNDP's priorities remain anchored in its mission to continue supporting the government in eradicating poverty and achieving sustainable development in order to tangibly improve the lives of India's people. Through innovative partnerships which promote inclusive and equitable growth, we aim to continue supporting greater access to national programmes for vulnerable and marginalized population, improve livelihoods, and augment skill-building for women. UNDP focuses on strengthening capabilities and opportunities to reduce poverty and marginalization in ways that are sustainable from economic, social and environmental standpoints.
