Abstract (EN)The idea of this paper is to use a switch of aid from Togo to Benin to assess the impact of this change on economic and social indicators. We use macro indicators as well as regional indicators to shed some light on the consequences of the sharp drop in aid in Togo in 1997, using Benin as a benchmark. As data are scarce, no econometric approach seems feasible, so we rely extensively on descriptive statistics, using mainly the Demographic and Health Surveys’ data. The impact of the sharp decrease of aid to Togo seems to impact the formal economy much more than the living standards of people in the regions.
