Trinidad and Tobago

Leveraging its analysis on the fundamental goal of the Human Development, the report seeks to ensure that “peoples choices are enlarged and that they can exercise these choices to enjoy long, healthy, and creative lives.” The report succinctly illustrates how young adults are experiencing “diminished” not “enlarged” choices of social and economic advancement.
