Basic sanitation services have always been a challenge for the country of Brazil. Fortunately for them, there are more and more dedicated individuals who are looking to devise ways to bring the country of Brazil into the future with much stronger waste management policies and strategies.
The government of Brazil now has some exciting news as it just recently announced a partnership with BNDES, the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. A recent interview definitely showed where BNDES and Brazil were at in their waste development services. Felipe Montoro Jens is a specialist in Brazilian infrastructure projects, and noted several things about these current developments:
First of all, there is the loss of water. As Montoro Jens notes, this loss can have serious consequences, including the fact it is not possible to receive the correct services when there is this type of waste.
Secondly, Montoro Jens issued a warning. He said that water organizations must be accurate in order to prevent more financial problems in Brazil’s water industry. Obviously, this has some serious deleterious effects to those receiving these services in this country.
Finally, Montoro Jens believes that close observation should be the rule and not the exception. In order for Brazil’s waste management program to effectively flourish, cost cutting measures must be introduced in order to keep it from going under.
Indeed, Felipe Montoro Jens has a long history of the required leadership needed in order to keep things from imploding. He has served as the chairman of the board for a number of important organizations, including director of Braskem S.A.
Felipe Montoro Jens is definitely the steady hand that Brazil needs in order to fully administer their water and waste management infrastructure needs. His full understanding of the role concessions plays can only benefit the future of Brazil.
