Private investment and know-how in demand
German development policy in India sees a particularly great need for private-sector investment and know-how in the following areas in the coming years.
- Climate and environmental protection
India is the world's third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases and at the same time is itself severely affected by the effects of climate change. The pressure on natural resources is great, the groundwater table, for example, has been dropping dramatically for years. Agriculture must become more agro-ecological. These problems cannot be solved without the widespread use of innovative, environmentally friendly technologies. This represents an enormous opportunity for companies with the appropriate know-how.
- Cities and infrastructure
The enormous population growth in Indian cities will continue in the coming years. At the same time, resources and infrastructure are already overstretched in many places. Limited access to clean drinking water and sanitation are just two of the Herculean tasks facing India's cities. According to estimates, around 64 percent of the 2030 building stock has yet to be built. Mobility must become predominantly electric, low-emission and also accessible to people. Sustainable, climate-adapted and socially balanced infrastructure projects are therefore a key issue with considerable market potential.
- Renewable energies
With a population of around 1.3 billion, the demand for electricity in India is enormous. In order to limit CO2 emissions, the Indian government is planning immense new investments in the energy transition to renewable energies over the next ten years. However, the necessary know-how for implementation is often lacking. This can result in interesting opportunities for companies.
