Predicting Partnerships: Which Countries Will the Millennium Challenge Corporation Select This Year?

CGD senior policy analyst Sarah Rose will forecast which countries the Millennium Challenge Corporation’s board of directors is likely to select for FY2015 compact and threshold program eligibility at its December 10th board meeting. Drawing on a new MCC Monitor Analysis released earlier in the week, the presentation will highlight current issues affecting the MCC’s selection process, including the need to prioritize picks in a tight budget environment, evaluate multiple contenders for possible second compacts, consider countries that do not “pass” MCC’s scorecards, and determine whether any candidates are the right fit for the new model of the threshold program.
