Lesotho Compact Monitoring & Evaluation

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Lesotho Compact aims to achieve the results below by the end of the compact in September 2013:

  • Benefit approximately 304,000 people in urban areas and 150,000 people in rural areas;
  • Maintain 28,000 jobs and create 12,000 additional jobs in “wet industries” as part of the Metolong Dam activity;  
  • Improve rangeland productivity and improve livelihoods for an estimated 55,000 people under the Wetlands Restoration and Conservation Activity;
  • Renovate up to 150 health centers and up to 14 hospital out-patient departments to improve service quality and availability;
  • Improve property and commercial rights for more than 14,000 enterprises, and
  • Deliver formally recognized titles to up to 55,000 urban households.

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 Lesotho 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, four independent evaluations are underway, which 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. More information about the evaluations of Rural Water and Sanitation, Urban and Peri-Urban Water Systems, Health Clinic Rehabilitation and Renovation, and OPD Center Rehabilitation and Renovation activities is available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
