Results to Date

Information on results to date is available in the Table of Key Performance Indicators. 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

MCC carefully monitored implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results. MCC also funded independent evaluations of the Property Rights and Vocational Education Projects to 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. Information on these evaluations can be found in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
