Background and Context
The overall goal of Country Programme 2012-2016 is to aid efforts by Montenegro to increase equity and ensure the inclusion of children and women who are in need of special protection, live in poverty or are socially marginalized.
The programme will contribute to the following key results by the end of 2016: (a) Montenegro addresses disparities and gaps in access to quality social services for excluded and vulnerable boys, girls and families in line with United Nations standards;(b) the country’s legal framework is harmonized with EU/United Nations standards, and policies relevant to child-focused governance and social inclusion of children are implemented and monitored; and (c) national and local authorities systematically apply the principles and standards of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and Copenhagen criteria (for membership in the EU) and facilitate independent monitoring.
The country programme comprises two mutually reinforcing components: child protection and social inclusion; and child rights, policies and planning. These reflect the need for continuity in supporting the Government and institutions to complete the child care system reform agenda and implement policies and strategies for children at central and local levels; securing investment in equitable inclusion and protection of the most vulnerable and marginalized groups; strengthening capacities in planning, child rights monitoring and budgeting; and implementing the framework for a sustainable legacy of child rights.
Communication for development is a key strategy. Production of various communication materials in order to effectively convey appropriate key messages to different audiences is an essential component of UNICEF’s communication for development.
