Basic sanitation is a fundamental requirement for every living being. Its absence is a catastrophe health-wise, socially, and economically. Poor sanitation leads to the spread of waterborne disease. These ailments weaken the health system of productive people, which in turn affects their productivity. It, therefore, leads to a slowed economic growth. However, there has been increased sensitization on water and sanitation issues worldwide. Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure expert, helps us understand how concessions in Brazil are set to improve its levels of sanitation.
The publicity of sanitation concessions in Brazil has stirred staggering opinions from people in different walks of life since the issue affects all. Inclusive is Felipe Montoro Jens who has extensive experience in the field of infrastructure. From the very beginning of this initiative, Jens says he has been in its support and expressed his strong belief in it. He claims that the project will equally bring about managerial, structural and resource improvements. Additionally, the project would also lead to the reduction of the overall waste levels.
Felipe Montoro Jens adds that the incorporation of the private sector in public sanitation of the country would complement other than oppress the services of the public sector. The private sector is the powerhouse of both resources and advanced technology. Therefore, their union would ultimately lead to improved sanitation service delivery. Moreover, the program is set to bring in customized action plans that are intended to meet the exact needs of particular locations. This, in turn, reduces wastage and results in better financial allocation and management.
