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.

Roads Project

Enhance access to markets through investments in the road network:

  • Rehabilitation of three primary roads;
  • Improvements of rural roads;
  • Capacity building and technical assistance for road maintenance planning and implementation, and
  • Incentive matching fund for periodic road maintenance.
Agriculture Development Project

Expand productive use of land in order to increase the volume and value of agricultural production in project zones through:

  • Water management and irrigation infrastructure rehabilitation and construction;
  • Diversified agriculture with extension, business development and marketing support, and
  • Access to rural finance.
Rural Land Governance Project

Increase investment in land and rural productivity through improved land tenure security and land management:

  • Legal and procedural change with associated communication and outreach;
  • Institutional development and capacity building for land services delivery, and
  • Site-specific land tenure interventions in selected communes.
Bright II Schools Project

Increase primary school completion rates for girls through:

  • Construction of school complexes, kindergartens, and boreholes;
  • Social mobilization and adult literacy training, and
  • Provision of take-home rations for girls with high attendance rates.

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Burkina Faso Compact aimed 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

Results to date are available in the Table of Key Performance Indicators (a subset of the full set in the Burkina Faso Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). The full set of performance indicators is detailed in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.

Impact Evaluation Framework

MCC carefully monitors implementation performance and the measurement of preliminary results. MCC will fund several independent evaluations to assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments, and to measure impacts specifically attributable to MCC-funded activities. 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.
