Senegal Compact

Projected Long Term Results
Project Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Irrigation and Water Resource Management Project 260,000 $345,000,000
Roads Rehabilitation Project 1,350,000 $375,000,000

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.

Project Objectives

Projected Results by End of Compact

The Senegal Compact aims to achieve the results below by the end of the compact in 2015 (estimated date):

  • Rehabilitate 120 km on the RN2;
  • Rehabilitate 252 km on the RN6:
  • Increase the volume of irrigated rice produced to 111,000 tons; and
  • Extend the area of new land under irrigation by 7,800 hectares

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 Senegal Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). 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

In addition to careful monitoring of implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC may fund several independent evaluations to assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments and measure impacts that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities.  More information will be available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan and on MCC’s Impact Evaluation web site.
