Monitoring in the CEE/CIS and Baltics: the MONEE project

Since 1990 UNICEF has gradually extended its advocacy, information, emergency and - in a few cases - programme assistance activities to the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and to members of the former Soviet Union. This initial report and those that will be produced at regulare intervals by the 'Monitoring the Transition in Central and Eastern Europe' (MONEE) project are part of these technical assistance and advocacy activities. The project is carried out in close collaboration with the central statistical offices and a number of policy centres of the region and aims to document and analyse the social impact of reforms initiated since 1989 in a systematic, continuous and comparative way.
