Social Sector Investment Programme 2023

The Social Sector Investment Programme (SSIP) 2023 examines the socio-economic environment of Trinidad and Tobago, and the strategic developments made toward attaining social transformation. It also provides an overview of the national social context by scrutinizing existing and new social sector initiatives, as well as investments made by the key social sector Ministries, and the Tobago House of Assembly toward social development, during the 2022 fiscal year.

The major Social Sector Plans for the fiscal year 2023 are also outlined in the document. This year’s SSIP 2023 comprises inter alia, three (3) Chapters, and four (4) Appendices. Consequently, the document notes the ongoing challenges presented by the ongoing COVID19 pandemic; the war between Ukraine and Russia; climate change; and the urgent need for food security, which have all significantly impacted economies locally, regionally and internationally.
