ABSTRACT
Increasing the economic wellbeing of the poorest households is one of the main goals of the new economic policy in Senegal. The poverty reduction strategy will be implemented in a context globalization with major changes in the agricultural sector. In this context, we have developed a microsimulated computable general equilibrium model that allows us to link the reforms to changes in welfare at the household level and more specifically the impact on income distribution and poverty. The approach is flexible since income distribution of groups is endogenous to the model and household classification of incidence analysis is independent to the CGE modeling exercise. This article compares a parametric and empirical approach for poverty analysis, and the choice of the approach can influence the final results. Our relatively strong results illustrate the richness of the methodology for policy impact analysis. Moreover, our agricultural price increase reveals increases in poverty in contrast to results found in other countries.
