 Voices around the world are demanding leadership in 2015 on poverty, inequality and climate change. These universal challenges demand
 global action, and this year presents unprecedented opportunities for achieving the future we want.

What kind of future will we live in? What will Montenegro look like in 2030? These questions are very hard to answer, for sure, as the future is getting more and more uncertain. But that’s not the reason to sit and wait for the future to happen.

More than 12.000 people of Montenegro, which makes 2% of country’s population, were actively involved within a two-stage process of national Post-2015 consultations.



  A one-floor so-called “smart” building, is conceptualised to combine energy-efficient, environmentally friendly technology and modern design, and it smoothly fits in the landscape between the two bridges on the river Morača. The building brings together UNDP, UNICEF, UNHCR and IOM to work under one roof within the Delivering as One framework.
