Abstract: An integrated sequential dynamic computable general equilibrium model is used to study the potential poverty and inequality effects of a complete tariff removal in Senegal. The model is calibrated with a 1996 social accounting matrix and a 1995 survey of 3,278 households. The outcomes indicate small short-run negative impacts in terms of welfare and poverty. In the long run, growth effects captured by the model bring an expansion of the industrial and service sectors and a substantial poverty decrease. However, the decomposition of the results shows that the contribution of the redistribution component to poverty alleviation is negative.
