With a population of 1.2 billion, one of the fastest growing in the world, India is in the starting blocks to become one of the three largest economies in the world by 2050. But to support this growth, infrastructure such as roads, railways, airports, ports, power grids all need developing. The need for improvement in the fields of urban planning, hydrology and sanitation is increasing exponentially.
