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

Protect and restore healthy coconut supply, and diversity farmers’ income.

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 sources of potable water supply and improved sanitation.

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Mozambique Compact aims 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 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 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. Read more about the evaluation of the Rural Water Supply Activity. More information about the Land Tenure Services activity evaluation is available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
