IS Senegalese growth strategy pro-poor ?

The main purpose of the Senegalese accelerated growth strategy (AGS) is to boost economic growth so as to make poor people share its benefits. In any given economy, there is a relationship between growth, poverty reduction and income distribution. In this paper, a dynamic computable general equilibrium model was developed to simulate the quality of the AGS pattern and to evaluate the quality of the growth. It turns out that growth generated by SCA is not pro-poor. However, compared to the growth path obtained in the absence of any policy or shock (« business as usual »), it presents a more beneficial profile to the poor. / L’objectif principal de la Stratégie de croissance accélérée (SCA) du Sénégal est d’accroître le rhythme de la croissance économique en la rendant profitable aux pauvres.
