Evaluation Briefs

MCC Evaluation Briefs summarize the key results and learning from MCC’s independent evaluations in a user-friendly, four-page packet. They distill key findings and lessons in an accessible way while also pointing to MCC’s publicly-available information about our investments. Evaluation Briefs are co-produced by the independent evaluator and MCC’s Monitoring and Evaluation division, maintaining MCC’s commitment to objective, independent reporting on program results. Each Evaluation Brief includes a program overview, key findings, evaluation questions, detailed findings, MCC learning, and evaluation methods.
