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.

Improvement of Land Privatization and Registration System Activity

Decrease time and cost to conduct a formal land transaction and increase the volume of formal land transactions conducted 

NCDI Capacity Building Activity
NCDI Management Activity
NCDI Early Detection Activity
NCDI Prevention Activity
All Non Communicable Diseases and Injuries (NCDI) Activities
Privatization of Ger Area Land Plots Activity

Provision of formal land rights to ger areas and related increases in land tenure security, investments and land values.

Peri-Urban Land Leasing Activity

Increase herd productivity, decrease land degradation and ultimately raise herder income by providing exclusive pastureland use rights to herder groups and promoting improved animal husbandry practices.

Energy and Environment Project (EEP)

The objective of the project was to increase wealth and productivity through greater fuel use efficiency and decreasing health costs from air pollution in Ulaanbaatar by,

  • Reducing incidence of respiratory-related morbidity;
  • Reducing fuel consumption;
  • Increasing energy efficiency;
  • Substituting wind power for additional coal-fired power generation capacity; and
  • Improving power quality.
North-South Road Project

The objective of the project was to create more efficient transport for trade and access to services through:

  • Increasing traffic flow;
  • Decreasing travel times;
  • Decreasing vehicle operating costs; and
  • Decreasing road roughness.
Health Project

The Objective of the Health Project was to reduce the risk of premature death and disability from NCDIs (Non-Communicable Diseases and Injuries) and traffic injuries.

Property Rights Project

The project’s objective was to increase the security and capitalization of land assets held by lower-income Mongolians, and increase peri-urban herder productivity and incomes by:

  • Providing secure land rights and other incentives to promote efficient land use;
  • Introducing a long-term land leasing system in peri-urban areas, and
  • Improving the property registration system.
Vocational Education Project (TVET)

The project objective was to increase employment and income among unemployed and underemployed Mongolians by improving the quality and relevant of the technical vocational education and training (TVET) System.

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Mongolia Compact aimed to achieve the results below by the end of the compact in September 2013:

  • Increase immovable property values of hashaa plots in Ulaanbaatar by 13%;
  • Increase dairy yield of cows for project herder groups (amount of increase under review);
  • Increase the employment rate of technical vocational graduates from 71% to 75% and increase annual salary of TVET graduates from $1,237 to $1,336.
  • Decreased prevalence of high salt intake, high blood sugar, and hypertension. (Amount of decrease of each undetermined)
  • Increased treatment of diabetes and hypertension. (Amount of increase undetermined)
  • Decrease Travel Time on the North-South road segments from 13 hours 50 minutes to 8 hours 20 minutes
  • Decrease estimated health costs from air pollution in Ulaanbaatar. (Amount of increase undetermined)

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.
