Principles into Practice

MCC was founded with a focused mission to reduce poverty by promoting 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 in the projects and activities in which MCC invests. The learning captured in this series will inform MCC’s ongoing efforts to refine and strengthen its own model and development practice. MCC hopes this series will allow others to benefit from and build upon MCC’s lessons.
