Chronic Poverty in Senegal

Dhana Wadugodapitiya


This Policy Note draws on the key research findings and policy messages of a 2008/09 study entitled The Dynamics of Poverty in Senegal: Chronic poverty, transitional poverty, and vulnerabilities. The study was conducted by the Research Laboratory on Economic and Social Transformation (LARTES-IFAN) with support from CPRC, UNICEF, IRD, and the Senegalese Ministry of Family and Early Childhood. The study captured 80 years of Senegal’s social history through its research participants, and analysed how people enter, remain in, and exit poverty.
