The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a resolution adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 25 September 2015. The Agenda comes along with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated targets.
Our Priority Areas
An Inclusive Equitable and Prosperous Trinidad and Tobago
The priority area An Inclusive, Equitable and Prosperous Trinidad and Tobago, builds on the core SDG concept of equitable development for all “leaving no one behind” as a prerequisite for prosperous and sustainable societies. This includes focusing on areas such as quality education, reduced inequalities for all, including persons with disabilities and increasing access to social protection systems.
A Healthy Trinidad and Tobago
The priority area A Healthy Trinidad and Tobago responds to the concern that health and nutrition are increasingly affecting the lives of the people in Trinidad and Tobago. Some of the areas of focus include: universal access to quality health care services and systems, increasing maternal and child care services, increasing food safety, developing national plans to prevent and control NCDs.
A Safe, Just and Cohesive Trinidad and Tobago
The priority area A Safe, Just and Cohesive Trinidad and Tobago acknowledges that insufficient citizen security restricts the people of Trinidad and Tobago to live full and productive lives. This has an impact especially on women, youth and other vulnerable groups. Focus areas include: combating Gender-Based Violence and increasing access to justice and protection for all.
A Sustainable and Resilient Trinidad and Tobago
The priority area A Sustainable and Resilient Trinidad and Tobago focuses on addressing the effects of climate change on livelihoods, especially those who are most vulnerable. Other focus areas include: increasing universal access to clean and sustainable energy and building Disaster Risk Reduction.
The UN MSDF
The UN Multi-country Sustainable Development Framework (MSDF) is considered the blueprint to achieving the 2030 Agenda. The UN MSDF supports the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the SAMOA Pathway and other international development aspirations, and the national development plans of Trinidad and Tobago.
