Even though Brazil has witnessed exponential growth in just about every sector in the past few years, whether it is the economy, infrastructure, education, social, cultural, and others, there is one problem that continues to persist still, the issue of sanitation. The government for long have been trying to devise new ways to fight the problem of sanitation, but unfortunately, the problem has not only persisted but grown in the past few years. It is for this reason the government is planning to take significant steps in the area of sanitation, and the first major step that the government took is collaborating with the National Bank for Social and Economic Development.
The collaboration would help in the distribution of the concessions that the government plans to give under the BNDES Program. Trata Brasil is one of the market leaders in the field of water management, waste management, and sanitation. Trata Brasil’s President Edison Carlos said in an interview that the collaboration between the public and the private sector to fight the problem of sanitation would help in eradicating the issue of sanitation once and for all. The partnership would also assist in controlling it going forward so that it doesn’t impact as much as it does now.
Felipe Montoro Jens, who is the CEO of Energipar Captacao S.A., said in an interview that concessions from the government as well as the public-private partnership would collectively go a long way in fighting the sanitation issue. He mentioned that it is necessary for the government to realize that the joint venture with the private sector would be of tremendous help in curbing sanitation problem across the country in a short period. Felipe Montoro Jens has done his graduation from the Getulio Vargas Foundation and completed his post-graduation from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.
Recently, the Brazilian Government divulged information about some intended concessions in the water and sanitation sector as a partnership with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (NBESD). This stirred a debate, which the water industry is willing to dive in. Felipe Montoro engaged Trata Brasil’s President, Edison Carlos in an interview where he gave his insights on the matter.
The Initiative aims at engaging private companies in providing water and sanitation services to the public. Currently, the public sector delivers 90 percent of these services 70 percent of which comes from state organizations. According to Edison Carlos, the public sector will not be excluded when the industry comes into the picture; rather it stands a chance to benefit from the advanced technology and the many resources owned by the private companies. In the end, this initiative will benefit the water and sanitation sector in a positive way, particularly in the way it is structured and managed.
Edison Carlos noted that public agencies need to do thorough inspections on the private companies that will be engaged. The companies’ operations should be able to match with the needs of the public. The goals intended should also be highlighted clearly in the contracts. The NBESD will be mandated to create strategic plans for each state that it has a presence in. Through surveys, the bank will do an analysis on the state of the water sector in every location. The bank will then roll out the project based on these findings.
