Region of activity

Understand how we operate in regions of social vulnerability

We center our activities on regions affected by social and environmental vulnerabilities whose socioeconomic indicators suggest the need for intervention.   

Our social technology has been tested in the Southern Bahia Lowlands, in the northeast of Brazil, a region which contrasts an abundance of natural resources with low Human Development Indicators.

The selection of this location to test this technology was due to Norberto Odebrecht`s vision and awareness that the region was affected by major social inequalities. This choice was confirmed by the diagnosis demonstrated in the following indicators: 

  • Percentage of poor and extremely poor of over 60%; 
  • Only 30% of teenagers aged between 15 and 17 were enrolled at schools; 
  • Levels of violence represented by an average homicide rate almost twice higher than the national level.

*Data from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) and 2016 edition of the Violence Atlas.

From an environmental point of view, the Southern Lowlands represents a contradiction. On the one hand, rich biodiversity, regular rainfall, predominance of the Atlantic Rainforest biome, and important remaining forests. On the other, impacts caused by the suppression of ciliary forests, reduction of forest coverage, and pollution of watercourses that receive sewage and  pesticides, due to inadequate management.

Today, having proven the impacts of PDCIS, this technology may be reapplied in other regions, meeting the demands of institutions and social investors interested in fighting poverty and inequality, by promoting sustainable territorial development. Find out how!
