BNDES To Implement Water Conservation Strategies

In an interview performed by Felipe Montero Jens, where the President of Trata Brazil, Edison Carlos was interviewed several key concerns were raised in relation to the private and public sector working together to improve the structure, resource allotment and administration of sanitation services in Brazil.


Through the conservation efforts of the private sector, and the experience of the public sector, water can be conserved for the citizens of Brazil. Felipe Montero Jens believes that the cost that will be passed down to the citizens is of great importance and needs to be reviewed by both the governing agencies. He also believes that there needs to be a review in regards to the waste of water before such services can improve.


BNDES is going to implement action plans for such matters which involves both the public and private sectors input. Edison Carlos believes that the private sector has more resources than the public sector and can aid tremendously in the conservation of water.
