Mathematica is partnering with the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to conduct an evaluation of the MCC-funded Policy Reform and Institutional Strengthening Project, a key component of the five-year, $375 million Benin Power Compact.
Several of our evaluations are examining the impacts of investments in infrastructure—such as electricity, roads, and irrigation systems—on increased productivity of enterprises, farmers, and households, as well as on household and business income.
