Razakatiana, Sahondra (2009). "The triangle of inequality: a challenge for a socially sustainable development, Application to rural Madagascar" Paper presented at the 6th annual conference of the HDCA, 10-12 September 2009, Lima, Peru.

What could be the link between poverty-inequality, inequality of capability, and inequality–equity, when they are considered in measurement terms? In rural West-Madagascar, "poor" and "rich" seem have the same living conditions. The way of defining and characterizing poverty and inequality, is based on the following question: am I capable to honour my ancestors through the usual traditional ceremonies? The capability to perform traditional ceremonies which corresponds to a "power to do" in order to reach a "power to be" makes a person respected and recognized in the society. Panel household’s data collected by the Rural Watch System Network of Madagascar, are used to build multidimensional poverty and inequality indicators.
