This report presents the midterm findings from an impact evaluation of the Millennium Villages Project (MVP) in northern Ghana. The MVP has been designed to demonstrate how an integrated approach to community-led development can translate the international Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) into results. Overall, the quantitative analysis finds that the project had moderately positive impacts at the midterm. The project had “little overall impact on poverty” and crucially “has not yet had a sizeable impact on the MDGs”.
