Malawi Compact

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Malawi Compact aims to achieve the results below by the end of the compact in September 2018:

  • An enabling environment for future expansion created by strengthening sector institutions and enhancing regulation and governance of the power sector, to include: rebuilding ESCOM into a financially sustainable, gender equitable and operationally well-managed utility; and developing a regulatory environment that enables public and private investment in power infrastructure, particularly in new generation;
  • Increasing the throughput capacity and stability of the national electricity grid through investments in infrastructure, including investment by the government in new generation, improving the availability, reliability, and quality of the power supply;
  • Costly power disruptions reduced by ensuring the sustainability and increased efficiency of Malawi’s hydropower generation along the Shire River basin.

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

Impact Evaluation Framework

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