Comparative Study of National Poverty-Reduction Strategies: Côte d'Ivoire, Benin, Burkina Faso, Madagascar

June 21, 1997

Marc Raffinot

Abstract: The present study is in fact a comparative analysis of four earlier case studies: Benin (Charmes, 1997), Burkina Faso (Raffinot, 1997), Côte d'Ivoire (Nshimyumuremyi, 1997) and Madagascar (Razafindrakoto, 1997). This study will therefore limit itself to general aspects that are common to the four economies. Readers who are interested in the analysis of a particular country or in the bibliographic references should refer to the original studies. After a brief overview of the problem, the study examines the principal characteristics of the development strategies of the countries in question together with the characteristics of the poverty that exists there and the modalities and results of the poverty alleviation strategies pursued.
