Jordan Compact Monitoring & Evaluation

Projected Results by End of Compact

With its completion, the Jordan Compact aims to achieve the results below:

  • Water Network Project improvements produce an economic rate of return of approximately 16%, and increase the incomes of approximately 302,000 households (or approximately 1,634,000 individuals) over 20 years.
  • Wastewater Network Project and As-Samra Expansion Project improvements produce an economic rate of return of approximately 14%, and increase the incomes of approximately 375,000 households (or approximately 2,020,000 individuals) over 20 years.
  • Increase network water consumption per capita from 65 to 96 liters cubic per day.
  • Improve efficiency of network water delivery through the reduction of water losses in Zarqa Governorate by 15 percentage points.
  • Increase coverage rates of the residential population to the wastewater network from 72% to 82%.
  • Increasing the percentage substitution of treated wastewater for freshwater in agriculture from 61% to 70%, improving allocation of scarce water resources

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 Jordan 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.

Project Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Wastewater Network Reinforcement and Expansion Project
Objective

The Wastewater Network Project increased access to the wastewater network and increased the volume of wastewater collected. The increased wastewater collected is linked to the benefits derived from the As-Samra Expansion Project.

National population exceeding 9 million. The higher beneficiary number reflects the revised view of project benefits as primarily comprising resource savings to the economy at large. To date, observations do not validate expected changes in consumer usage of water and expenditure on water that were anticipated at the time of compact development. $103,000,000

2012 constant (or approximately 2005 PPP $164 million). The original presentation was in 2005 PPP dollars for international comparisons. The end of compact analysis was carried out in 2012 constant values.

Water Network Restructuring and Rehabilitation Project
Objective

The Water Network Project reduces water losses and improves the overall efficiency of network water delivery. The increased availability of network water will reduce the amount families spend on water.   The Water Smart Homes Activity also provided direct assistance to poor households to improve their household water and sanitation infrastructure and to increase the amount of water available in their homes.

2,000,000

(5.1 million revised) This corresponds to the population increment of Zarqa and Amman over 20 years plus about 50,000 agricultural beneficiaries. The total estimated beneficiary population would have been about 5.1 million if one considers the total population as beneficiaries and not the cumulative increment. This is the position for the end of compact re-assessment.

The Water Network Project reduces water losses and improves the overall efficiency of network water delivery.

9,000,000

The higher beneficiary number reflects the revised view of project benefits as primarily comprising resource savings to the economy at large. To date, observations do not validate expected changes in consumer usage of water and expenditure on water that were anticipated at the time of compact development. The number includes a farming population in the Jordan Valley that would have lost livelihoods in the absence of access to treated waste water to substitute for declining available supplies of fresh surface water for use in irrigation.
