In 2003 the Government of Trinidad and Tobago decided to disengage from sugar cultivation and end all subsidies to the sugar industry in Trinidad and Tobago by the end of 2007. A National Adaptation Strategy (NAS) was subsequently developed to support the national adjustment to a combination of reforms to the European Union (EU) Sugar Protocol and the Government’s decision to disengage and end all subsidies to the industry. The EU subsequently allocated funding of €75 million under the Accompanying Measures for Sugar Protocol (AMSP) Countries, Trinidad and Tobago 2007-2013 to assist the implementation of the NAS. This report assesses the performance and impact of the AMSP programme.
