India - Pathways to Sustaining Rapid Development in a New Climate Economy

This paper India - Pathways to Sustaining Rapid Development in a New Climate Economy by the New Climate Economy’s India Initiative argues that India’s efforts to achieve rapid, inclusive and sustainable development have been hampered in the past by pervasive inefficiencies that arise from market, policy and institutional failures and weaknesses. Efforts to address these weaknesses in a comprehensive manner can significantly increase the pace of improvement in the well-being of the population while also better tackling environmental and climate risks. Drawing on the framework developed in the New Climate Economy report, "Better Growth, Better Climate", this paper focuses on three critical socio-economic systems where increased efficiency, investment and innovation can yield major development and environmental benefits: energy systems, agriculture and land use, and cities.
