The United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2017-2021 is a five-year strategic framework of cooperation between the Government of Montenegro and the UN for the period 2017-2021. Strategic document called Integrated UN Programme for Montenegro 2017-2021 is designed to optimise the combined knowledge and resources of UN system organisations working under the Delivering as One modality, sustaining results of the previous Integrated UN Programme 2012-2016. Strategic document was jointly developed by the UN Country Team in Montenegro and the Government of Montenegro, in collaboration with civil sector, academia and international stakeholders. The document, which articulates UN’s assistance to Montenegro in addressing key national priorities, is aligned with the Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development and country’s aspiration to join European Union.
The draft document provides a jointly agreed plan to support the country in the following key thematic areas:
- Democratic Governance;
- Environmental Sustainability;
- Social Inclusion and
- Economic Governance.
Integrated UN Programme for Montenegro 2017-2021 was officially adopted by the Government in February 2016 and came into force as of 1 January 2017.
