    The Financing for Development (FFD) process and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) process are some of the recent events in the realm of economic multilateralism in the United Nations (UN). India, on its part, has always engaged with the UN and global multilateral processes. This study seeks to focus on India’s diplomacy on FFD and SDGs in the context of its long history of engaging with global economic governance through the UN. It begins by highlighting the significance of the multilateral for India, then moves on to a detailed discussion of the FDD and SDG processes, and finally to continuity and change in India’s economic multilateral engagements. The monograph concludes by highlighting the significance of India for the multilateral and focussing on the policy implications deriving from these analyses.
