“Norwegian Support to Western Balkans Development - Norway for You–Montenegro” Project (Project) will contribute to a more balanced socio-economic development in Montenegro, by increasing employment opportunities, supporting social cohesion and improving local infrastructure in least developed municipalities. The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) allocated NOK 15 million for this project implemented by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) during 24 months.

Project will achieve two outputs:

Output 1: Improved Access to Employment

Output 2: Enhanced Social Inclusion through Improved Living Conditions

During its lifetime, the Project will support self-employment, provide vocational training in accordance with the Local Employment Action Plans, organise Calls for Proposals for projects of local government institutions, civil society organisations and business support organisations and support projects for improvement of living conditions and quality of life.

The key stakeholders and the direct beneficiaries of the Project are the local self-governments and their institutions and organisations along with the Union of Municipalities of Montenegro (UOM), Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare (MLSW), Ministry of Economy (MoE), Chamber of Economy (CoE), regional development agencies, national employment agencies and local branches, civil society organisations (CSOs), business support organisations (BSOs), Regional Rural Development Standing Working Group, the Fund for Active Citizenship, as well as individual beneficiaries, small and medium sized enterprises and especially women and youth. The final beneficiary is the population of the underdeveloped areas where the Project will be implemented.
