The government promised to grant concessions following collaboration with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. Edison Carlos, who is the president of the Trata Brasil, gave the assurance that the services provided will significantly improve through this partnership. He promises improvement in management, structure, and resources. The acknowledgment was made before the interviewee, Felipe Montoro Jens, who is a specialist in infrastructural developments.
The challenges and solutions in the water sector
Public power provides 90% of sanitation services in Brazil, of this 70 % are served by government’s organizations. The development has prompted the inclusion of the private sector to boost service delivery. The two can work perfectly well and in a complimentary way.
It is indeed an avenue for the private service providers to learn from the government organizations. The partnership will mainly revolve around the areas of contracts and the inspection, which will be undertaken by public agencies. Private companies have the advantage of utilizing the best technologies and resources in the prevention of water loss and unnecessary waste. They will also be involved in the improvement of sewage networks, a clear evidence of the significant role to be played by the private sector. Felipe Montoro argues that it is indeed not possible to deliver such water and sewerage services when there is high wastage of water.
