Analysis by New Climate Economy

"India: Pathways to Sustaining Rapid Development in a New Climate Economy".

http://2014.newclimateeconomy.report/india/

 

 

Excerpts:

 

"In 2014 Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi’s government was elected with a strong mandate to jumpstart rapid development that is both inclusive and sustainable.

 

Financial inclusion of the poor has significantly increased, with over 100 million new bank accounts opened in just a few months under the Jan Dhan Yojana initiative.

 

India experienced the most sustained period of rapid growth in its economic history during the 2000s – an average of close to 9% a year between 2003/04 and 2010/11 – even taking into account a brief but sharp slowdown in 2008/09, during the global economic crisis.

 

Some 49% of households in India rely on firewood for cooking, especially in rural areas."
