If the decade of the 1990s is to be the decade of "adjustment with equity", then concern for poverty and the social dimensions of adjustment will have to be integrated into the design of structural adjustment loans (SALs). However, before this can be done, a detailed analysis of how the poor interact with the processes of adjustment is required. This paper provides a methodology for just such an analysis. Cote D'Ivoire has been selected as a case study for the first application.
