    In Burkina, vulnerability and poverty analysis have been dominated by the monetary approach. Using the generalized formula of poverty index developed by Foster and al. (1984), we try to define new concepts of poverty in relation with dietary needs and energy intakes. Our results show that monetary approach tends to underestimate the incidence of poverty insofar as it does not take sufficiently into account social capital and the role of institutions in poverty alleviation.
