Georgia Compact II Monitoring & Evaluation

Results to Date

Information on results to date is available in the Table of Key Performance Indicators—a subset of the full set of indicators monitored under the Georgia II Monitoring and Evaluation Plan. The Key Performance Indicators are those selected as the most critical for the current year.

Impact Evaluation Framework

In addition to carefully monitoring implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC also funds independent evaluations to assess the impact of MCC’s investments on the target beneficiary groups, and seeks to measure impacts that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities. More information will be available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan and in MCC’s Impact Evaluations.
