We present the framework of a macro-micro simulation model for the study of the impact of economic policies on income distribution and monetary poverty in Madagascar. Modelling options and choices are discussed for the micro-economic module and for the macro-micro linkages. Econometric estimations and calibration of the occupational choice / labor income part of the micro-economic module are presented and commented. Some illustrative simulations of poverty alleviation schemes are also implemented and analyzed. _________________________________ Nous présentons le cadre d’un modèle de simulation macro-micro pour l’étude de l’impact des politiques économiques sur la distribution du revenu et la pauvreté monétaire à Madagascar. Les options et les choix de modélisation sont discutés pour le module micro-économique et pour les liaisons micro-macro. Les estimations économétriques et la calibration du modèle de « choix » d’occupation et de revenu du travail sont présentées et commentées. Des simulations illustratives de stratégies de réduction de la pauvreté sont aussi mises en oeuvre et analysées.
