The Power of Concessions in Societal Sanitation Services as Reported by Felipe Montoro Jens

Concessions evoked by the National Bank of Economic and Social Development (BNDES) are one of the debatable issues. The government made an announcement that it will have an oversight to partner with the bank. The initiative has been welcomed by the water department.

 

Edison Carlos, the CEO of Trata Brasil, a sanitation firm, granted an interview to Felipe Jens, an infrastructure development expert to exploit some critical aspects of the initiative. These elements included the positive impact of the project as well as the reduction in the level of waste.

 

In Brazil, 90% of the sanitation services offered uses public power. Of these, virtually 70% of the consumers are served through public organizations. However, he urged that the emergence of a private enterprise is not meant to fend off the public, for the two models of management can harmoniously work together if well implemented.

 

He also pointed out that with the government experience, private entities can leverage their services. The bank will provide tailored made solutions that satisfy the needs of each location. Felipe Jens, on the other hand, identified the loss of water as the reason for government funding, and with such high levels of waste, the dispensation is challenging.

 

As per Edison, private companies have adequate resources to surmount water conservation projects, and this is fundamental for the development of the sewerage network to resolve the current Brazilian status quo.

 

Further, Edison expressed that operational efficiency of an organization does not depict the level of administrative capacity. There should be integrity between the operational models and the needs of the society.
