EmpowerPEOPLE - Practical Action

The aim of empowering people at the Base of the Pyramid (BOP) is to identify appropriate technical solutions in order to tackle basic needs in developing countries. But what are basic needs exactly? What does Maslow tell us?

In 1943, Abraham Maslow presented his well-known “hierarchy of needs”. According to his theory, people need food, water, sleep and warmth the most. These are considered to be basic needs and it is only when these basic physical requirements are met that individuals can progress to the next level, that of safety and security. Once these needs are fulfilled, interpersonal needs follow and the realization of one’s own potential represents the top of the hierarchy.

It was Dr. Ernst Friedrich Schumacher who coined the term “Small is Beautiful”. The economist and philosopher wanted to stress that small-scale technologies are the ones needed in the fight against poverty. These solutions have great advantages: they can be implemented with local resources and skills and they are affordable – which makes them tools that empower people to help themselves.
