The Minister of Labor and Social Welfare, Admir Adrović, and the permanent representative of UNDP in Montenegro, Daniela Gašparikova, signed today the Cooperation Agreement with UNDP for the implementation of the "e-Social" project, the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare announced.

The announcement adds that with this agreement, the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare continues its intensive and successful cooperation with UNDP, when it comes to the development of social policy.

"The "e-Social" project is a pillar of the further reform of the social and child welfare system, without which it is not possible to conclude the reform in an optimal way, nor to implement the implementation of legal regulations, in order to systematically respond to the needs of citizens in a state of social need in the best way. System , which already provides services for close to 200 users, with numerous set controls, does not allow improvisations and the possibility of abuse," the announcement reads.

Adrović said that the "e-Social" project implies continued cooperation on the improvement of the social and child protection system, all with the aim of a greater degree of satisfaction for all citizens, and above all those most vulnerable who need help and support the most.

"With the great effort and enthusiasm of the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare and the true commitment of UNDP, in which we see our sincere partner, we will work intensively on building a better and fairer society, in which no one will and must not be neglected or neglected. Our goal is to support and provide help to those who need it most, in order to reduce the number of those who are at risk of poverty, and we hope to completely eradicate poverty in Montenegro," said Adrović.

Gašparikova said that the project will provide data for informed decision-making, which will contribute to the progress of Montenegro according to the social agenda of the European Union.

"She stated that it is important to understand that the social protection system is only part of the solution. Other government departments should provide quality education, health care, prerequisites for employment, and the like. The social protection system is there to support those who need temporary or permanent need, and they are not able to provide for themselves or there is no support from other departments," reads the announcement of the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare.

"This project is most relevant for Centers for Social Work. The Center is a key actor and the HEART of the social protection system. If the heart does not beat properly - the entire social protection system will not function, and those who need help the most will not receive timely and high-quality social protection." said Gasparikova.

The Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare said that both parties agree that dedicated work awaits them in the years to come, so that the reform of social protection fulfills its goal.

"Management of the "e-Social" project is under the responsibility of the Government of Montenegro, that is, the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare, while the project is implemented with UNDP, with strong engagement of the entire social protection system. About 3,8 million have been allocated for the implementation of this project euros", concludes the announcement of the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare.
