6 Develop a global partnership for development

Where we are?


Art work created in July 2010 in Bijelo Polje, Montenegro. During the Art Colony, organized by the UN System in Montenegro, around 40 artists from Europe depicted and sculpted the pain of poverty.

This Goal is monitored through two fields:

  1. Coordination of international donor support and
  2. Development and application of information-communication technology.

As an EU membership candidate country, Montenegro increasingly uses certain programs and funds of the European Commission. Thus, the most significant support it uses comes from IPA funds. The process of decentralization of the management of IPA funds within the components I and II is in its final stage and the accreditation package has been sent to the European Commission. All necessary institutional structures have been established and they are aware of the procedures that will be effective in the decentralized system.

According to the official data, Internet penetration in Montenegro amounts to approximately 56.8%. In 2012 the share of the persons who used computers in the last three months amounted to 58.8%, while the share of people who have never used computers amounted to 34.2%. As for the Internet use, 56.8% of persons said that they used Internet in the last three months, 80.8% being those who used Internet every day or almost every day, 16.0% persons used the Internet at least once a week. In comparison to 2011, there is an obvious increase in the number of persons who used computers and Internet: share of the persons who used computers in the last three months increased by 10.9%, while the percentage of persons who used Internet in the last three months increased by 10.3%.

Recommendations:

 

  • It is necessary to ensure smooth functioning of all established structures so that the available EU IPA funds can be used efficiently.
  • It is necessary to ensure implementation of the Strategy for Information Society.
