This study is part of the in-depth research on poverty in Côte d'Ivoire. It aims to assess the pro-poor nature of growth by distinguishing three periods: 2002 - 2008, 2008 - 2015 and 2015 - 2018. The specific aim was to analyze the pro-poor growth indicators defined by Ravallion and Chen, Kakwani & Perni for these three periods, and to identify the determining factors using decomposition methods. The results obtained indicate that, at national level, growth was pro-poor only over the 2008 -2015 and 2015 - 2018 periods, with the main factor being the effect of growth in the incomes of the poor for the first period and the redistribution effect for the second period. For the period 2002 - 2008, growth was not poor. The analysis of contrasts according to area of residence revealed that the rural poor benefited from the effects of growth over the three study periods, while the urban poor were only pro-poor over the 2008 -2015 and 2015 - 2018 periods.
