In an effort to modernize Brazil’s waste water management system, it has recently partnered with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES). Concessions formally agreed to by the government will enhance an initiative aimed at infrastructure improvement and resource efficiency. The details of the concessionary move are highlight and lauded by Edison Carlos, the president of Trata Brasil.
Edison notes that the vast majority of Brazil’s sanitation needs are performed by the public sector and the state. The BNDES agreement is an ideal way of combining the management strategies of both state and private industries. The power of the government to contract with innovative resource groups encourages benefits for all people in Brazil.
Felipe Montero Jens also adds that complimentary concessions will create a situation where water management needs can be addressed region by region. Every state in Brazil has unique water loss problems, and a joint effort can pinpoint the most financially agreeable solutions. This includes significant modernization of sewer lines and entire municipal sewage networks. In essence, the combining of management entities will make umbrella policies and procedures obsolete. New structures for improvement will have to be customized to the demographics they serve. Most importantly, this means making improvements work financially for all parties.
All parties in this matter including BNDES, the national government, and industry analysts agree that the key to making the combined effort work is a focus on clear service goals. Concessions are important, but so is the inclusion of consistent public oversight.
