New Strategy for Sanitation in Brazil Discussed in Recent Interview

A new plan partners private companies with publicly funded agencies in order to improve sanitation in Brazil. In an informative interview between an infrastructure expert Felipe Montoro Jens, and the president of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos, the new partnership was discussed. The two leaders covered the ways that the government agencies and private groups could work together. The government of Brazil would begin working with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES). The majority of the sanitation work in Brasil has historically been performed by government agencies, so this proposed partnership is completely new. It offers the possibility of wider resources, and new structures which have the potential to greatly increase the sanitation of the city.


In the past, 90% of the sanitation work in Brazil was done by either country funded workers or state workers. Because the federal and state agencies have a great deal of experience, the private companies that enter the scene will be expected to learn from, and work with the government agencies. The private companies will also have to follow pre-stated rules and regulations governing the standards of the work that they preform. The two leaders, Edison Carlos and Felipe Montoro Jens, it was agreed upon that the best way to proceed was through partnership rather than competition. By working together, the private and publicly funded units can help the country meet sanitation goals.


Infrastructure specialist Felipe Montoro Jens is known for his strong leadership and managerial skills. He went to graduate school at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, which gave him the skills that he needed to become CEO and director of many companies through out his career.
