India Vision 2030: Version 2.0

Aromar Revi, Anokhi Parikh, Gautam Bhan  |  June 2010


This IIHS working paper is a rolling draft of an ongoing exploration of India’s potential economic, natural resource, human development, environmental, and human settlements status over the coming two decades. The paper examines eight contemporary demographic, economic and socio-political transitions and their associated challenges, opportunities and potential synergies. It then identifies five macro-outcomes that may and should be achieved by India, if this synergy can be enabled: the end of endemic poverty and reduction of inequality; progress around social transformation; the initiation of a century-long environmental sustainability transition; further political consolidation; regional and wider geopolitical engagement and economic integration into a more inclusive single national market.
