Feb 22 -- The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) has increased membership of its Economic Advisory Council (EAC) from 20 to 25 individuals. MCC is soliciting nominations by March 7, 2021 for the 2020-2022 term for five new members on the EAC. MCC plans to host the first meeting of the 2020-2022 term of the EAC in Spring 2021. The EAC will meet at least one time per year in Washington, DC or via video/teleconferencing.
The EAC serves MCC in an advisory capacity only and provides insight to sharpen MCC's analytical capacity and ensure continued expertise on relevant issues related to economic development. The EAC provides a platform for engagement with economic development and evaluation experts and contributes to MCC's mission to reduce poverty through economic growth. MCC will use the advice, recommendations, and guidance from the EAC to inform threshold, compact, and concurrent regional compact development, implementation, and results measurement procedures, and assess future policy innovations and methodologies at MCC. The EAC is seeking members to comprise a diverse group of recognized thought leaders and experts representing academic institutions, think tanks, donor organizations, and development banks.
The EAC consists of up to 25 individuals who are recognized experts in their field, academics, innovators, and thought leaders, representing academic organizations, independent think tanks, international development agencies, multilateral and regional development financial institutions, and foundations. Qualified individuals may self-nominate or be nominated by any individual or organization.
