Despite India’s rapid economic growth, there are still substantial development challenges in the poorer parts of India. DFID India is responsible for a programme of development cooperation with Indian partners worth £280 million per year. Focused mainly on the states of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, and West Bengal, the programme includes work in health, education, governance, infrastructure, rural livelihoods, and urban development. In all these areas, we focus particularly on women and girls. A new programme of work to support private sector development is being designed. There is an innovative cross-departmental unit on climate change housed within DFID.
DFID India works in partnership with government, international organisations, and civil society. The 90 staff based in our New Delhi office (co-location with the British High Commission is planned for 2012) work with the Government of India on nationwide programmes, and with governments in a number of states with particular poverty needs. Two State Offices provide support and local knowledge.
