ABSTRACT
Bien que les approches conventionnelles concernant la réduction de la pauvreté, telles que formulées par les objectifs du millénaire pour développement (OMD), soient utiles et nécessaires, elles ne sont pas suffisantes pour relever le défi. L'intégration financière est une approche alternative offrant des solutions progressives et complémentaires, tout en favorisant un processus de développement intégré qui s'adresse directement aux OMD. Cet article en décrit les grandes lignes, en commençant par expliquer les principes de bases de l'intégration financière, ainsi que ses connexions avec la réduction de pauvreté et les OMD, et ceci en se basant sur des recherches de terrain ainsi que sur la littérature secondaire sur le sujet. Suit un exposé de plusieurs expériences internationales, afin de prendre en compte les aspects pratiques de l'approche, avant une troisième partie qui synthétise plusieurs modèles d'intégration financière. Etant donné la crise financière globale actuelle, la nécessité d'intégration financière est plus impérative que jamais. Cet article se termine en proposant plusieurs moyens possibles pour renforcer les liens entre l'intégration financière, la réduction de pauvreté, et les OMD par rapport à des processus de planification, de définition de politiques de développement, ainsi que de programmation.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 213-230. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2008.17
