Cabo Verde Compact II

Projected Long Term Results
Project Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Land Management for Investment Project 13,000 $28,000,000
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project 326,000 $46,500,000

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.

Project Objectives
Project Objective
Land Management for Investment Project

Reduce the time required for establishing secure property rights, and establish more conclusive land information in areas likely to be developed.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Cabo Verde II Compact aims to achieve the results below by the end of the compact in November 2017:

  • Establish financially sound, transparent, and accountable institutions delivering water and sanitation services to Cabo Verdean households and firms
  • Reduce the time required for establishing secure property rights, and establish more conclusive land information in areas of near-term, high development potential in Cabo Verde

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 Cabo Verde II Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). The full set of performance indicators is detailed in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.

Impact Evaluation Framework

MCC will carefully monitor implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results. The agency will fund several independent evaluations to assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments, and measure the gains in income attributable specifically to MCC-funded activities. More information is available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
