Mongolia Compact

Projected Long Term Results
Project Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Energy and Environment Project (EEP) 340,000 $10,000,000
North-South Road Project 154,000, (Choir-Sainshand Road) $114,205,000
Health Project 1,726,820 $48,000,000
Property Rights Project 59,004 $54,800,000
Vocational Education Project (TVET) 170,000 $51,000,000

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.

  • NCDI capacity building among health facilities;
  • Promotion of NCDI risk-factor reducing behavior;
  • New screening procedures to increase early detection of NCDIs, and
  • Provision of effective disease management services.
Property Rights Project

Increase the security and capitalization of land assets held by lower-income Mongolians, and increase peri-urban herder productivity and incomes by:

  • Provisioning secure land rights and other incentives to promote efficient land use;

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Mongolia Compact aims 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 (a subset of the full set monitored under the Mongolia 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 independent evaluations of the Property Rights and Vocational Education Projects that 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. Information on these evaluations can be found in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
