This study aims to assess the impact of policies implemented by the government of Cameroon to reduce poverty and informality, as co-dependent phenomenon. The research team uses CGE modeling tools and techniques to simulate different policy scenarios and measure the effects on economic activity and welfare in the country. The results suggest that, in order to have significant impact on welfare, policies should focus on increasing the wages of workers, rather than formalizing their activities.
