Brazil Partners with the Private Sector to Improve It’s Sanitation

In May 2017, the Brazilian government got into a partnership with National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) so as to improve Brazil’s sanitation. The partnership will focus on improving the sanitation of Brazil through integration of services that will be provided by the public and the private power. The partnership will work in a way that they will both complement each other as they provide these services. According to the president of Trata Brazil, Brazil can achieve its desired sanitation if the government’s adverse experience is used together with other companies. Edison also quoted that for a very long time, the public power has been responsible for the provision of 90% of Brazil’s basic sanitation.


Felipe Montoro Jens is an infrastructure expert. During the agreement, he pointed out that water losses have to be controlled to achieve better sanitation. Edison also noted that the private sector will come in handy in controlling water losses because they have more resources. He also stated that the Bank will adopt a customized action plan that will suit the needs of different places. Felipe Montoro Jen asked these two sectors to consider the needs of the citizens as well as their operation mode as they take up the task. He also pointed out the cost as it is a very important aspect in this plan.
