Abstract

Dans ce travail nous utilisons un modèle d’équilibre général calculable mutli-ménages intégrés pour analyser l’impact de la construction d’une autoroute à péage entre Dakar et Thiès au Sénégal, sur la pauvreté et les inégalités. Nous avons simulé différents scénarios découlant de la construction de l’autoroute tel que des gains de productivité, une réduction du coût moyen des transports et une augmentation de l’offre de travail. Nous avons appliqué les indices de pauvreté Foster, Greer et Thorbecke (1984) et l’indice de Gini. Certains résultats obtenus sont un peu contre intuitif dans la mesure où les effets positifs ne sont parfois plus important en milieu rural que dans la région Dakaroise. In this paper we use an integrated multi-household computable general equilibrium model to analyse the impact of the construction of a toll highway between Dakar and Thies in Senegal. We simulated different potential effects of the highway construction such as productivity gains, decrease in transportation cost
