Mesures de la pauvreté et impact de la crise économique en Afrique Occidentale et Centrale : Brève introduction à la seconde partie du dossier

Listed author(s):
  • Quentin Wodon

Dans la première partie de ce dossier consacré aux estimations et profils de la pauvreté dans les pays d’Afrique Occidentale et Centrale, sept études de cas pour le Burkina Faso, le Cameroun, le Gabon, la Guinée, le Mali, la République du Congo, et le Sénégal furent présentées (voir Perspective Afrique, Volume 4). Cette seconde partie du dossier inclut huit études additionnelles : une par pays pour le Burkina Faso, le Cap-Vert, la Guinée et le Libéria et deux par pays pour la République Centre-Africaine et le Sénégal. Comme ce fut le cas pour la première partie du dossier, l’objectif de la publication est modeste : rendre plus facilement accessible ces estimations, ainsi que les méthodologies utilisées pour les obtenir, de sorte que d’autres puissent s’inspirer de ces travaux pour leurs propres analyses. Etant donné la hausse des prix alimentaires et la crise économique qui a frappé les pays en développement (dont l’Afrique) en 2008-09, deux des huit études font directement référence à l’impact de cette crise. In the first part of this special double issue of Perspective Afrique devoted to estimates and profiles of poverty in West and Central Africa, seven case studies for Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Gabon, Guinea, Mali, the Republic of the Congo, and Senegal were presented (see Perspective Afrique, Volume 4). This second part of the special issue includes eight additional case studies. As was the case for the first part, the objective of this publication is modest: it is simply to make more easily accessible these estimates, as well as the methodologies used, so that others can be informed by this work for their own analysis. This second part of the special issue includes new studies for Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Guinea, Liberia, and two studies each for the Central African Republic and Senegal. Given the increase in food prices and the economic crisis that hit developing countries (including sub-Saharan Africa) in 2008-09, two of the eight studies are devoted to the impact of the crisis.
