Planning ahead with gender statistics to leave no one behind in Trinidad and Tobago

Understanding and measuring use of data
Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago are rich in natural resources but at the mercy of disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes. As the country looks to diversify its economy away from fossil fuels and into sectors that support the long-term development of the economy, public officials are under pressure: competition for new investment and resources is high and timeframes are short. Without careful planning, informed by high-quality, disaggregated data, vulnerable groups, including women and girls, may miss out on opportunities for development; or even see their current situation worsen. Aisha, a Senior Land Use Planner with over ten years of experience working in Trinidad, needs to take this into consideration in her daily work life.
