India-U.S. Triangular Development Partnership
U.S. and India share a common vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific region. The India-U.S. Triangular Development Partnership (TriDeP) is aimed at enhancing India’s development cooperation footprint in the Indo-Pacific and achieving shared goals for the development of the region. Under this activity, India’s role as a development leader and preferred partner in the Indo-Pacific region will be further leveraged in collaboration with the U.S.
TriDeP will focus on three priority areas, which include disaster risk reduction, climate smart agriculture, and renewable energy, where India demonstrates policy leadership, practical experience, and sustainable results. In countries across the region, TriDeP will establish partnerships with government, civil society, business corporations, think tanks, and academic institutions. Through Indian Centres of Excellence, training institutes, and the private sector activities, TriDeP will build capacities and forge collaborations and develop Triangular Cooperation projects to provide targeted assistance.
TriDeP draws upon the Foundation’s six decades of experience operating in the Indo-Pacific, its operational infrastructure, and relationships in 18 countries in the region to transfer Indian innovations addressing challenges in agriculture, disaster management, and renewable energy. In doing so, TriDeP promotes India’s strong development expertise, expands the joint U.S.-India development partnership, and fosters greater regional prosperity.
