Upcoming IDB BASE Forum helps private sector focus on the “base of the pyramid”


Versión en español

This June 6 and 7, the IDB is holding the second International BASE Forum in Medellin, Colombia. The conference is being organized by our colleagues at the IDB’s Opportunities for the Majority (OMJ) sector. The Forum, much like OMJ, will focus on the dynamic world of business models that engage with “the base of the pyramid”—the poor and low-income populations that used to be largely underserved by the corporate world, but are increasingly seen by the private sector as having enormous untapped potential as consumers and actors. I recently sat down with OMJ manager Luiz Ros to learn more about the event.

Dignity in the dump




We had a visit from a movie star at the IDB this week! Sebastiao “Tiao” dos Santos is one of the principal subjects of “Waste Land,” a 2010 documentary that won many prestigious film festival prizes and was even nominated for an Oscar. The film depicts the community of catadores, or “waste pickers,” who eke out a meager living collecting and selling recyclable materials in Jardim Gramacho, a massive landfill on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. Renowned artist Vik Muniz spent time at the dump creating striking multimedia portraits of some of the catadores, and the documentary shows the process of the artistic collaboration and how the artist and his subjects inspired each other.
