Abstract

As stated in previous work (Aka 2016) the Basic Income Grant (BIG) could represent a powerful policy of changing the Ivorian society, and the building block of financial, economic and social inclusion through prosperity sharing in Côte d’Ivoire. The political will and courage are needed for implementation of this achievable challenge and international cooperation may be a financial support. Here we analyze poverty, development, quality of life (including health and education indicators) and several channels for international cooperation to development with particular focus on seven Western Africa countries: the French speaking countries of WAEMU: Benin, Burkina Faso, Core d´Ivoire, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo, with particular focus on trade, investment and contribution to industrial development. With a combination of these policies two goals may be reached: increase sustainable development and, as a consequence, diminution of the poverty ratio, and to increase the amount per capita to provide BIG to the poorest people. The article includes several indicators of development and quality of life in these countries and their international relationships with Europe and other areas.
