Felipe’s thoughts on the involvement of the private sector in providing public sanitation services
Felipe is a highly respected project manager and strategist in the infrastructure industry. According to Felipe, the partnership between the private and public sectors will a have a significant impact on the provision of sanitation services. Felipe pointed out that water shortage and management of waste present a major problem in Brazil. BNDES is expected to conduct surveys and come up with plans that will solve these pre-existing sanitation problems. Having done research on the places that are substantially affected, BNDES can now come up with specific projects that can serve the needs of each affected area. Felipe also added that the private sector has sufficient resources to implement these projects to help the Brazilian community. Felipe also emphasized that there should be a relationship between the ability of a company to deliver services and the utility it chooses to sponsor.
