The Sanitation industry is one of the most important industry in any economy, and Brazil is no different. Over the years, the Brazilian government has been looking for a way in which to better this industry and finally its progress is bearing fruits. Recently, the government announced a concession that was meant to better the industry. The concession included both changes in management and resources. To understand this concept better, Felipe Jens has helped break things down.
According to Felipe, one of the limiting factors when it comes to the provision of services in the sanitation industry is the huge loses that are as a result of leakages. Felipe notes that with huge wastes people are unable to receive valuable services. With a stall in service delivery, the financial services are wasted in addressing these issues as opposed to providing quality services.
The concessions are timely and if integrated well into the system will see the Brazilian economy benefit a lot. Mr. Felipe seems to be in agreement with Edison who says that in as much as the private sector partnership services and expertise come in handy in the delivery of services, active participation of public sector is key. Generally, the sanitation sector is made up primarily of the public sector with at least 90% of the services rendered by a public organization. By actively engaging the public sector, the government will be guaranteed that the services given will meet the needs of the industry.
