Mali Compact

Projected Long Term Results
Project Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Alatona Irrigation Project 649,592 $247,700,000
Bamako-Sénou Airport Improvement Project 2,186,986 $120,600,000

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
Alatona Irrigation Project

Increase the agricultural production and productivity in the Alatona zone of the Office du Niger through:

  • Rehabilitating and paving of 81 km of the Niono-Diabaly-Goma Coura Road;
  • Developing the irrigation system through the construction of a 63 km primary canal and networks of secondary and tertiary canals;
  • Expanding the main conveyance system of the Office du Niger canal by removing the central barricade of the feeder canal;
  • Implementing a more efficient water management system in the Office du Niger;
  • Updating the land registry system in partnership with the National Directorate for State Property and Cadastre;
  • Financing and management of subsidies for applied agricultural research, and
  • Informing and training farmers on improved farming practices for irrigated production.
Bamako-Sénou Airport Improvement Project

Establish an independent and secure link to the regional and global economy through:

  • Reinforcing overlay to, and expanding of, the runway, taxiway, and apron areas;
  • Replacing deteriorating navigational equipment;
  • Upgrading of Airport security systems;
  • Rehabilitating the existing passenger terminal and constructing a new passenger terminal; the raising of ground equipment; and developing access roads and parking lots;
  • Providing technical and organizational assistance to ANAC (Agency of Regulation and Surveillance of Civil Aviation), and
  • Supporting reform and enhancing private sector participation in the airport management.

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Mali Compact aimed to achieve the results below by the end of the compact in August 2012:

  • Increase per capita income from irrigated agricultural production in the Alatona zone by $725;
  • Increase total revenue of firms servicing the airport by 18%, and
  • Decrease transportation costs for products along the Niono- Goma Coura road by 50%.

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

Impact Evaluation Framework

In addition to careful monitoring of implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC is funding and impact evaluation that will assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments and measure the gains in income that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities. Read about the impact evaluation of the Alatona Irrigation Project. More information also is available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
