The Vision 2030 National Development Strategy
The NDS Vision 2030aims to provide a broad socio-economic development framework to the year 2030. It is intended to provide for an orderly long-term development process, inclusive of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Trinidad and Tobago’s approach to implementation of the 2030 Global Development Agenda will begin with the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in the areas such as maternal mortality, an area where we have already made great strides, containment of HIV/AIDS, and reducing the incidence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). However, it must be noted that under the MDGs, the country has surpassed the targets in many areas such as gender parity in schools, the
elimination of malaria and tuberculosis and set new international benchmarks in Early Childhood Education.
As the country’s principal strategic planning document, it defines the priorities and overarching thrust of government policy, which is focused on achieving sustainable economic growth through greater diversification of the economy, as well as improving the social conditions and quality of life of citizens in an inclusive and environmentally sensitive manner. The Strategy comprises a vision for Trinidad and Tobago to the year 2030, long-term national goals, and the national short-term goals and strategies over the next five years (2016–2020) to lay the foundation for achieving the vision
over the longer period.
