CGD senior policy analyst Sarah Rose will forecast which countries the Millennium Challenge Corporation's board of directors is likely to select for FY2014 compact and threshold program eligibility at its December 10th board meeting. Drawing on a new MCA Monitor analysis released earlier in the week, the presentation will highlight current issues affecting the MCC’s selection process, including strong competition for scarce resources, assessing first compact implementation to determine second compact eligibility, and what the MCC should do about countries developing compacts that do not meet the criteria for performance on MCC's policy indicators.
