UNDP AND INVEST INDIA LAUNCH THE SDG INVESTOR MAP FOR INDIA

Context

UNDP and Invest India have launched the SDG Investor Map for India.

Details

It lays out 18 Investment Opportunities Areas (IOAs) in six critical SDG enabling sectors, that can help India push the needle forward on Sustainable Development.

Key highlights of the SDG Investor Map

  • 10 Investment Opportunities Areas (IOAs) are already mature investable areas that have seen robust Private Equity and Venture Capital activity and feature companies that have been able to unlock scale and demonstrate profitability.
  • The remaining eight IOAs are emerging opportunities, which have seen traction from early-stage investors.
  • The map has also identified eight White Spaces, which have seen investor interest and have the potential to grow into IOAs within a 5-6-year horizon.
  • Nearly 50% of the shortlisted IOAs have historical investments that have yielded IRRs in excess of 20%.
  • 84% of the IOAs have investment timeframes ranging from the short term (less than 5 years) to the medium-term (between 5- 15 years).
