Armenia Compact

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Armenia Compact is expected to generate the following results by the end of the Compact in September 2011:

  • Rural poverty rate is projected to fall by 3 percentage points as a result of the Program;
  • Income from agriculture in rural areas is projected to increase by 5%, and
  • Farmers are expected to shift from low-value crops to high value crops as a result of improvements in irrigation supply, training and credit.

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 Armenia Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). The full set of performance indicators is detailed in the final Compact Monitoring and Evaluation Plan. The Post-Compact Monitoring and Evaluation Plan includes a smaller subset of indicators that MCC requires partner countries to report as the Compact closes.

Impact Evaluation Framework

In addition to careful monitoring of implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC is funding independent evaluations that will assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments and measure the gains in incomes that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities. Read more about the evaluations of the road rehabilitation and Water-to-Market activities. More information is available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
