STATISTICS

From January 2020 to November 2020, Turks and Caicos hosted a series of in-person workshops to guide the development of the NPDP. Since Covid-19 restricted the number of possible meetings and of potential attendees, these were supplemented by online presentations and surveys. The public was encouraged to share their thoughts of the best attributes of the island and the areas that needed improvement. The community engagement workshops were held for each of the six islands that were part of the six (6) study areas.
