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.
