Résumé

L’objectif de cet article est de vérifier l’hypothèse du havre de pollution en Afrique Subsaharienne. Les données analysées proviennent de la Banque Mondiale (Africa Development Indicators, 2017). La période d’analyse va de 1980 à 2016 (37 ans) et l’échantillon d’étude est constitué de 25 pays d’Afrique Subsaharienne. Un modèle de régression multiple inspiré des travaux de York et al. (2003) est estimé par la méthode des moindres carrés généralisés. Les résultats montrent que l’Afrique Subsaharienne est un havre de pollution, au regard de l’effet négatif des IDE sur la qualité de l’environnement dans cette sous-région.
