Mozambique Compact

Projected Long Term Results
Project Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Construction of Rural Water Points
Farmer Income Support Project 534,044 $43,050,000
Land Tenure Services Project 1,333,445 $38,840,000
Rehabilitation/Construction of Roads Project 1,237,734 $-13,280,000
Water and Sanitation Project 780,908 $52,360,000

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
Construction of Rural Water Points
Farmer Income Support Project

The objective of the Farmer Income Support Project was to improve productivity of coconut products and encourage diversification into other cash crop production.

Land Tenure Services Project

Establish efficient and secure land access for households, communities, and investors.

Rehabilitation/Construction of Roads Project

Increase access to productive resources and markets while reducing transport costs.

Water and Sanitation Project

Increase access to reliable drinking water supplies and improved sanitation.

Projected Results by End of Compact

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

  • Reduce the poverty rate by up to 10% in Northern Mozambique (Provinces of Cabo Delgado, Nampula, Zambezia, and Niassa);
  • Increase annual household income by up to $62, and
  • Reduce the incidence of stunted children under the age of 5 by 13%.

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

Impact Evaluation Framework

MCC carefully monitored implementation performance and the measurement of preliminary results. MCC funded several independent evaluations to assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments, and to measure impacts specifically attributable to MCC-funded activities.
