The above estimates are based in the best, currently available, information and may be updated if new, reliable, data are available.
The total beneficiary count for the Compact may not be the sum of the different project beneficiary counts because of overlaps between Projects. In other words, some beneficiaries benefit from more than one project but are counted only once in the total beneficiary count.
Total benefits expected from each project are obtained from the ERR analysis MCC conducts during due diligence. Beneficiary counts, although consistent with benefit streams identified in the economic analysis, are not necessarily derived from these models (which are concerned with costs and benefits rather than beneficiaries). MCC estimates and reports expected beneficiaries when sufficiently reliable data exists to support the estimation. If such evidence is lacking, no estimation is attempted, resulting in an underestimation of projected beneficiaries for the Compact. Calculating the amount of benefit per beneficiary would therefore give an overestimation and can be misleading.

- Increase the productivity of land in the Afram, Northern and Southern intervention zones by 12%, 12% and 25% respectively;
- Achieve a 67% reduction in travel time at peak hour on the N1 Highway;
- Complete construction of 14 km of the N1 highway, 75 km of trunk roads and 357 km of feeder roads;

- Construct or rehabilitate 350 boreholes, wells or non-conventional water systems affecting over 120,000 people.
Results to Date
Information on results to date is available in the Table of Key Performance Indicators (a subset of the full set monitored under the Ghana Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). The full set of performance indicators is detailed in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
Impact Evaluation Framework
In addition to careful monitoring of implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC will be funding several independent evaluations that will assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments and measure the gains in income that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities. More information is available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
