Child poverty in Montenegro
“Poverty reduction starts with children (UNICEF, 2000)”
Every country in the world, even the wealthiest, is affected by child poverty. Child poverty undermines equity and contributes to poorer outcomes in health, nutrition education and general wellbeing for children who live in the poorest households. Poorer children are also more vulnerable to the impacts of natural and man-made disasters and to abuse and exploitation. Child poverty is also an obstacle to fulfilling all aspects of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
