Constructive Partnerships Between Public and Private Sectors to Cleanup Brazil’s Water Resources

In a recent interview with Edison Carlos, the President of Trata Brasil, the level of waste within structural resources is reduced by a partnership between the public and private sectors. The idea of government agencies joining forces, especially the water and sanitation spectrum, presents a number of benefits. Carlos and Felipe Montoro Jens believe that BNDES, the National Bank for Economic and Social Developments recent tendency to make concessions and form private sector partnerships will prove useful.



Jens brings a wealth of entrepreneurial experience to the situation, having been a key component of Latin American Leadership forums. He brings years of experience as a member of highly respected boards of directors, including the chief executive officer for a number of Brazilian businesses. Montoro Jens earned a degree in business administration from Fundao Getlio Vargas, and subsequent masters in the management of international business ventures. Jens also studied at the American Garvin School of Management.



Felipe Montoro Jens has been at the forefront of Latin American economic innovation for years. In 2011, he spoke at the world economic forum, part of a unification effort where realistic objectives for business reform were set for the upcoming decade. Their efforts established a select 750-member panel to help shape partnerships between the business and public sectors.


Both Jens and Carlos believe that the private sector of business has sufficient resources to be an important ally to prevent the unnecessary waste of water. They bring enhanced types of technology that would otherwise not be available to the public sector. The fact that water was being lost was a primary contributing factor in losses incurred financially by the companies responsible for good water practices. Jens feels this partnership will produce considerable improvements in both water quality and the financial expenditures necessary to dramatically reduce waste.
