UNDP in Montenegro
Poverty and inequality
UNDP has helped develop fit-for-purpose, integrated information systems and increased the country’s capacity for social service delivery, which have been vital in transforming the social protection system into one that is more responsive to equity considerations.
UNDP will work with other UN entities to further develop the social welfare system for the twenty-first century. The aim is to improve service delivery by increasing participation by the most vulnerable people, such as marginalized women and men, survivors of gender-based violence, youth, people with disabilities and elderly people.
This will involve identifying their needs in order to influence budget planning and access to quality services, income-generation prospects (including in the digital economy) and social inclusion. Developing models linked to national policies will aid scaling up these efforts.
