|Rural Land Governance Project||N/A - The projectâ€™s economic benefits are expected to stem from reductions in economic losses related to land conflicts. Although descriptive evidence suggests that land conflict is prevalent in Burkina Faso, quantitative evidence is lacking to substantiate the extent and impact of the problem.||The projectâ€™s economic benefits are expected to stem from reductions in economic losses related to land conflicts.

|Bright II Schools Project||272,792, Although no ERR was calculated for BRIGHT II, expected beneficiaries were estimated using data from MCCâ€™s impact evaluation of the initial BRIGHT Threshold Program.||An economic rate of return model was not developed for this project and therefore no estimate of income gains exists.|
The above estimates are based in the best, currently available, information and may be updated if new, reliable, data are available.
The total beneficiary count for the Compact may not be the sum of the different project beneficiary counts because of overlaps between Projects. In other words, some beneficiaries benefit from more than one project but are counted only once in the total beneficiary count.
Total benefits expected from each project are obtained from the ERR analysis MCC conducts during due diligence. Beneficiary counts, although consistent with benefit streams identified in the economic analysis, are not necessarily derived from these models (which are concerned with costs and benefits rather than beneficiaries). MCC estimates and reports expected beneficiaries when sufficiently reliable data exists to support the estimation. If such evidence is lacking, no estimation is attempted, resulting in an underestimation of projected beneficiaries for the Compact. Calculating the amount of benefit per beneficiary would therefore give an overestimation and can be misleading.

Projected Results by End of Compact
The Burkina Faso Compact aims to achieve the results below by the end of the Compact in 2014:
- Increase income resulting from primary roads rehabilitation by $ 12.8 million,
- Increase income resulting from irrigation and agricultural investments by $ 2.8 million
- Construct 132 primary schools in rural areas
- Formalize up to 11,000 rural land parcels
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 Burkina Faso Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). The full set of performance indicators is detailed in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
Impact Evaluation Framework
In addition to careful monitoring of implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC is planning to fund several independent evaluations that will assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments and measure impacts that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities. Currently, evaluations are likely to be conducted for the Rural Land Governance, Agricultural Development, and BRIGHT 2 Projects. More information will be available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan and on MCC’s Impact Evaluation web site.
