The Benefit of Concessions for Sanitation Services According to Felipe Montoro Jens

Published / by CapaConf

The water sector has taken the initiative to generate concessions from the BNDES program, which is debatable among many people. Edison Carlos, the president of Trata Brazil, believes the improvements that will come as a result of this motion as it will host new administration and better structural and resource areas. The overall aim is to decrease the levels of waste, according to infrastructure projects specialist Felipe Montoro Jens.



Felipe Montoro Jens is the executive officer at AC Energia SA, and he has held many, other lucrative positions. He gained his undergraduate degree at Getulio Varagas Foundation, and he gained his graduate studies at the Thunderbird School of Global Management.



Montoro Jens reports that the loss of water is one of the main concerns this infrastructure currently faces. He believes it is also one of the blows that this sector has had to take financially. Montoro Jens has also gone on the record as saying that Brazil needs to address its water supply situation with just rigor as there are vast means for improvement.



It is important to note that an alliance must also exist between codes of operation that are in place for water infrastructure and the citizen who makes use of the infrastructure. This aspect is suspected to help in lower costs, which also deserves a great deal of observation according to Montoro Jens.



The only way to really achieve any measured kind of improvement in Brazil’s water infrastructure is to create partnerships throughout the country. Edison states that the only way to achieve the changes that must be made is through these partnerships as it links the country together on a united front against the issue at hand. All parties involved thus far say the process must first begin with governors taking a close review of the concession’s activities.

To improve on sanitation in Brazil, the government has announced that it will be making concessions, this will be through a partnership with BNDES. Mr. Edison Carlos who is the current president of Trata Brasil did grant an interview in which he speaks more about the important points of this initiative. He does believe that the provided services will have to undergo through some improvements which will better the resource areas, management, and the structural areas.


Almost 90% of basic sanitation services in Brazil is handled by the public sector, of which 70% of these users end up being served. To avoid this, the private initiatives should not be designed to exclude the publics; however, they can be focused on assisting them since the collaboration with the government will work better. Mr. Edison does believe that the government bodies have more power when it comes to providing the required experience which can easily be leveraged by partnerships with other companies.


The main role of BNDES will be formulating action plans which will be designated for the states being served. To see this through, the company will be aimed at conducting surveys; these will assist in understanding the current conditions of these states thus identifying the required resources all over.
