Trinidad and Tobago is a small island developing state (SIDS), considered as the most industrialized economy in the English-speaking Caribbean. Oil and gas is the leading economic sector and accounts for 40% of its GDP and 80% of its exports; yet, the island accounts for less than 1% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Nevertheless, the island suffers the common SIDS vulnerabilities, as well as facing additional increased potential of experiencing tropical storms despite not being in the main Atlantic hurricane belt. The government of Trinidad and Tobago recognized its responsibilities as a fossil-fuel based economy and is committed to playing its part within the global efforts, by installing a policy framework for a low carbon development plan through the National Climate Change Policy (NCCP), and developing a Carbon Reduction Strategy (CRS) for the power generation, transportation and industrial sectors, all three of which are included in its INDC, which considers only mitigation objectives.
