Principles into Practice

MCC was founded with a focused mandate to reduce poverty through economic growth. MCC’s model is based on a set of core principles essential for development to take place and for development assistance to be effective—good governance, country ownership, focus on results, and transparency.

The MCC Principles into Practice series offers a frank look at what it takes to make these principles operational. The experiences captured in this series will inform MCC’s ongoing efforts to refine and strengthen its own model. In implementation of the U.S. Global Development Policy, which emphasizes many of the principles at the core of MCC’s model, MCC hopes this series will allow others to benefit from and build on MCC’s lessons.
