Abstract: This article analyses the evolution of poverty and living conditions in Senegal using household surveys conducted over 2005-2009 within the context of the country’s efforts to achieve by 2015 the targets set forth under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The article was prepared as part of the evaluation of the PRSP II (Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper 2006-2010) implemented in recent years. Despite efforts in several areas, simulations suggest that poverty has remained stable between 2005/06 and 2009, and it is unlikely that the country will reach the MDG target of reducing poverty by half by 2015. It is also unlikely that the target of universal primary schooling will be achieved. However, results are better in other areas. Access to electricity and drinking water is improving, as is access to basic facilities in villages.
