Cet article examine l’importance du risque dans les mesures de la pauvreté monétaire rurale au Burkina Faso. L’analyse est basée sur des données longitudinales récentes collectées dans le cadre des activités de suivi-évaluation du projet PNGT-2 portant sur le développement communautaire dans le pays. La première partie de l’étude est consacrée aux estimations traditionnelles de la pauvreté pour la période de 2004 à 2006 et aux mouvements de sortie et d’entrée dans la pauvreté entre les années. La seconde partie montre comment l’intégration du risque dans les mesures de pauvreté tend à les augmenter de façon significative. This article assesses the importance of risk in the measurement of rural poverty in Burkina Faso. The analysis is based on longitudinal data collected as part of monitoring and evaluation activities for the PNGT-2 project on community development in the country. The first part of the study is devoted to traditional estimates of poverty for the period 2004 to 2006 and an analysis of movements in and out of poverty between the various survey years. The second part of the study shows how the integration of risk into the measurement of poverty tends to increase these measures significantly.
