Trinidad

The fieldsite is in one of the least developed regions of Trinidad. The semi-urban town has a population of around 18,000 and the demographics are fairly representative of Trinidad as a whole, with approximately 40% of Indo-Trinidadian heritage, 40% of Afro-Trinidadian heritage and a minority of those with Anglo-European, Syrian-Lebanese, and Chinese heritages. The town has a rapidly increasing number of services and businesses and serves as a hub for surrounding villages.
