The new EU Consensus on Development stressed the need to build partnerships around the world to help implement the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, to develop innovative engagement through a broader range of cooperation, addressing the multiple dimensions of the pledge to 'leave no one behind'.
This was reaffirmed by the recently adopted EU Strategy on India that set the scene for increased cooperation on common responses to global challenges and regional issues. Some of the common areas of interest include fighting climate change, promoting sustainable modernisation and supporting innovation, including through increased people-to-people exchanges.
Working with government agencies and civil society organisations, the EU partners with India in support of its flagship programmes such as Swachh Bharat, the 100 Smart Cities Mission, the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation or Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao.
