Felipe’s Interest is To Improve The Sanitation of Brazil

Sanitation and hygiene is one of the most important discussions in developing countries. And, for countries like Brazil, this is one of the major issues affecting it. The Brazilian Government has been doing its best to alleviate this problem but there so many underlying issues. So, they recently went into a concession to improve sanitation in Brazil. The Government announced that it would be partnering with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development.


To this Felipe Montoro Jens gave his two cents. He said that one of the biggest problems in the area is water wastage. And because of this issue, it had become very difficult to reduce wastage. He attributed the problem of water wastage to the over flooding of government agencies who have been given the job of solving this problem. He recommended private companies being given contracts. This is because they have enough resources to battle this problem.


Edison Carlos from Trata Brasil supported Felipe’s point with a statistic. He quoted that 90% of sanitation jobs had been given to government institutions. He was positive that things would be better if there was a balance in the division of sanitation jobs between government and private companies. Carlos also said that if the concession was to be successful, the bank would have to restructures. They would have to learn better management. Also, it would be helpful if they got more funding.
