Felipe Montoro’s Report
When the government declared that it would make concessions through partnering with National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES), Felipe Montoro interviewed Edison Carlos, the president of Trata Brasil, an initiative focused on basic sanitation, on the decrease in waste levels. Mr. Carlos said that the basic sanitation in Brazil has about ninety percent of its services done by the public and about seventy percent of these services are performed by national organizations. The two forms of management, that is, both the public and private initiative can get better results when they work in a complementary way.
Felipe Jens pointed out the loss of water as one of the primary causes of the flow of financial resources from the government companies in the water segment since it is hard to receive the services offered when there is such an enormous waste. Mr. Edison said that the private sector has adequate resources and by working with the state-owned companies, they will be able to prevent wastage of water. He also mentioned that the private companies have advanced technology that will be vital in raising more investments in sewage networks.
In conclusion, Felipe reports that it is important to have clear goals when drafting the contracts as well as in adopting public agencies where the services will be offered. It is also equally important that the governors review the services presented during the concession for verification.
