India Development Partnership Activity
The U.S. and India share a common vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific region. India’s role as a development leader and preferred regional partner can bolster synergistic development and enhance opportunities for partner countries in the Indo-Pacific region. The Asia Foundation is implementing the India Development Partnership Activity (IDPA), a three-year project that will enhance India’s development cooperation footprint in support of the U.S. and India’s mutual aims in the Indo-Pacific and beyond. The project focuses on three core areas: disaster risk reduction, climate smart agriculture, and renewable energy.
In countries across the region, IDPA 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, IDPA will build capacities and forge collaborations and develop Triangular Cooperation projects to provide targeted assistance.
IDPA draws upon the Foundation’s six decades of experience operating in the Indo-Pacific, its operational infrastructure, and relationships in 19 countries in the region to transfer Indian innovations addressing challenges in agriculture, disaster management, and renewable energy. In doing so, IDPA promotes India’s strong development expertise, expands joint U.S.-India development assistance, and fosters greater regional prosperity.
