Abstract

This paper tries to determine the configuration of the growth and poverty in relation to the dynamics of the deprivations. In this context, two orientations will be continued. On the one hand, the study proposes to examine specificities of the growth the pro-poor according to the wellbeing according to the country, the areas and the residence. On the other hand, a simulation is proposed to measure the impact of different levels of growth on poverty reduction. In the first case, it arises overall that the economic growth of Niger is pro-poor, except in the cities (Niamey in particular) where the growth seems to be pro-rich – the negative interference of the inequality more than counterbalanced the positive effect of the growth. In the second case, if the role of the growth in the reduction of poverty is undoubtedly, the simulation shows that the efforts required in order to reduce poverty by half, from here at 2015, are important. It is necessary to obtain a rate of economic growth with two digits so that Niger arrives at such a result, all things being equal.
