Our Impact

MCC is committed to delivering sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction throughout the entire lifecycle of its investments. MCC’s evidence-based approach is rooted in that mission, and its comprehensive results framework seeks to measure, collect and report on the outputs, outcomes, and impacts of MCC investments.

This includes results reporting of policy and institutional reforms associated with initial and ongoing program eligibility, tracking activity inputs and outputs to ensure that projects progress as expected, monitoring interim outcomes as programs near completion, and measuring long-term impacts after program closure through independent evaluations.

MCC’s results framework is designed to foster learning and accountability, and it has served as a model for global dialogue about development results and aid effectiveness for over a decade.
