To curb the sanitation challenges, Felipe Montoro highlighted how the Government suggested the utilization of concessions by joining forces with National Bank for Economic and Social Development – BNDES. Edison Carlos, the President of Trata Brasil in a current meeting, added that there are fundamental issues that need be taken care of on the matter. As indicated by Carlos, the improving of the services will introduce change in the services provided in resource zones, structural places and within management level. The reduction in water levels was also another issue brought forward by Felipe Montoro (a specialist in infrastructure ventures).
Edison added that the greater part of the sanitation services in Brazil (90%) are offered through public firms whereby 70% of the consumers receive services from state associations. Felipe anticipates that involving private firms should not be the excuse of not providing good services as the two kinds of associations (private & public firms) can work together to offer the needed services. He additionally integrated that the administration bodies have wide experience that ought to be utilized by joining forces with different associations.
As indicated by Jens, BNDES need to bring customized action strategies for the areas provided with the services. Through the framework, the bank will end up adapting the project to meet the requirements of every zone. For example, the loss of water was termed as one of the major challenges witnessed currently.
