Leveraging Public-Private Partnerships To Improve Access To Basic Services In Brazil

Government grants can accelerate access to clean water and sanitation services. The Brazilian government recently announced concessions in collaboration with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. Stakeholders such as Edison Carlos of Tata Brazil welcomed the move. He stated that you could expect better services from the improved management of resources.

Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure specialist, also noted that there would be decreased levels of waste. State agencies are in charge of water and sanitation services. They can improve their service delivery by collaborating with the private sector. Each has their strong points, which can complement the other to achieve efficiency. The bank will create custom plans for the implementation based on the unique needs of each location.

Water loss was identified as one of the leading causes of loss of revenue by the state agencies. Water that does not get to the intended customer cannot be billed. The private sector has access to larger pools of funding and the latest technology. This makes them ideal partners in the development of sewage networks and sanitation facilities. The technology can also be used to reduce water waste and consequent loss of revenue.

The success of a state agency can be measured by the level of penetration of their services.

Felipe Montoro Jens is a management and finance executive as well as an influential business leader. He has extensive experience in the Brazilian corporate sector.

He has also held c-level management positions in countries such as the UK and Singapore. This includes positions in project management, structured and international finance, and auditing.

He is adept at helping agencies achieve efficiency and improve their bottom line. He attended Getulio Vargas Foundation where he obtained a business administration degree. He then went for further studies at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, a part of Arizona State University.
