Country Comments

Montenegro is a small country along the Adriatic sea. It has emerged from the Balkan wars of the mid 1990s to gain independence in 2006. Thanks to over a decade and a half of stability, the country has seen improvement in the health and welfare of its populace. With below replacement fertility since the mid 1990s and some minimal migration, population growth has remained relatively flat the past decade.

Environmental issues include waste management and wastewater treatment pressures. In 2012 less than one third of the population was connected to a sewer system. However since then the country has made great strides in building more plants.

In education, Montenegro has achieved gender parity, and female enrolment is higher in tertiary education. Additionally early childbearing indicators are low. As reported by the UNDP Montenegro’s overall Human Development Indicators are high
