India Consensus

Tata Trusts launched the India Consensus project in partnership with the Copenhagen Consensus Center

The main objective of the programme is to identify the smartest solutions to some of India's most pressing development challenges. A number of studies were conducted across a wide range of policy areas — from education, health and governance to trade, infrastructure development and energy — through state-wide prioritisation projects that utilised the Copenhagen Consensus approach of cost and benefit analysis. The approach has been refined over the past 10 years to improve global and regional spending priorities and adapted to reflect the diversity and size of India.

The output showcases evidence on where a state (or other organisations) can do the most social, economic and environmental good for each rupee spent. By focusing on where the most benefits can be achieved,  it helps decision-makers with the difficult task of priority-setting.

The major partners of India Consensus are the Government of Rajasthan, Government of Andhra Pradesh, Niti Aayog, UNICEF, UNFPA, IIHMR, RCCI, Rajasthan Police Academy, Centre for CECOEDECON, ARAVALI, IDS, Startup Oasis, Save the Children and NHM.
