To improve on sanitation in Brazil, the government has announced that it will be making concessions, this will be through a partnership with BNDES. Mr. Edison Carlos who is the current president of Trata Brasil did grant an interview in which he speaks more about the important points of this initiative. He does believe that the provided services will have to undergo through some improvements which will better the resource areas, management, and the structural areas.
Almost 90% of basic sanitation services in Brazil is handled by the public sector, of which 70% of these users end up being served. To avoid this, the private initiatives should not be designed to exclude the publics; however, they can be focused on assisting them since the collaboration with the government will work better. Mr. Edison does believe that the government bodies have more power when it comes to providing the required experience which can easily be leveraged by partnerships with other companies.
The main role of BNDES will be formulating action plans which will be designated for the states being served. To see this through, the company will be aimed at conducting surveys; these will assist in understanding the current conditions of these states thus identifying the required resources all over.
