Abstract: This report highlights the joint work in Latin America over the past 4 years of the Alliance for Inclusive Business between the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and SNV Netherlands Development Organization. The report features 11 case stories from a variety of sectors and captures key learnings and success factors of inclusive business in practice, based on the Alliance’s experience on the ground. The case studies demonstrate how low-income communities are engaged across companies’ value chains – through direct employment; the development of suppliers, distributors and service providers; or through the innovative development and delivery of affordable goods and services that address unmet needs. The report also explains how, working through the local representatives of both organizations, the WBCSD-SNV Alliance has focused on three areas of activity: raising awareness about inclusive business models; brokering of new business opportunities that benefit low-income communities in the target countries; and advocating for the improvement of framework conditions for this type of inclusive business.
