Sanitation is slowly but surely becoming one of the biggest problems in Brazil, and even though many initiatives and projects are in place, the problem seems to be getting larger than the solution each time. The government of Brazil to control the sanitation menace in the country recently partnered with the National Bank for Social and Economic Development. This initiative by the government was warmly welcomed by the citizens of the country as well as other departments in the government, including the Water Ministry.
As per the current statistics, over ninety percent of the sanitation projects and initiatives are handled and managed by the government, and private sector has not yet fully involved in this niche in the country. And, this is the space, Felipe Montoro Jens and Edison Carlos wants to be filled up soon. Edison Carlos is the president of Trata Brasil, a primarily dedicated institute that focuses on making and implementing plans across the country on basic sanitation, resource management, and water management. Felipe Montoro Jens, one of the most famous financial executives in the country and infrastructure projects specialists, also believes that the initiative by the government is going to help the country in many different ways.
Felipe Montoro Jens said that the inclusion of the private sector for improving basic sanitation and water management is essential because it would make the necessary funds to complete such projects available quickly. Felipe said that the private sector has the resources available that would make the much easier, and faster. Felipe Montoro Jens added that the Trata Brasil is the right organization to develop sanitation and water management plans for each state of Brazil. Felipe Montoro Jens has studied Masters in Business Administration from the Thunderbird School of Global Management. He also serves as the CEO of the reputed firm Energipar Captacao S.A.
Basic sanitation must be a priority to every government. IT is in this spirit that the Brazilian government made a concession by partnering with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) to improve the management and structural integrity of existing sanitation resources in the area.
The concessions will see Felipe Montoro Jens, a project infrastructure expert take lead in bring basic sanitation to Brazilians. This is a great project bearing in mind that over 90 percent of the Brazilian sanitation is public driven. With a mere 70 percent of this coming from the state organizations, the project has its work cut out if it is to make proper sanitation a reality.
Felipe Montoro Jens believes that the public and private management can work perfect if they complement each other. The government has immense experience and skill and the project has a higher chance of succeeding if the government partners with other private companies to improve on efficiency.
According to Montoro, It is crucial to keep the goals clear when signing any contracts related to the concessions. The adoption of inspection agencies should also follow a transparent path to ensure accountability and increase the possibilities of success.
