How Brazil Plans on Tackling Its Waste Problems

Excess human waste and pollution levels have grown to become a major problem worldwide. There are a handful of different countries around the world that are struggling to contain all the human waste that builds up year after year.


The Brazilian government has come up with a way to crack down on excess human waste. Members of the government have decided to team up with BNDES (National Bank for Economic and Social Development) to improve sanitation ratings and resource areas.


There is a hope that there will be a decrease in waste levels after concessions are built to contribute to improving local sanitation scores. A majority of sanitation services in Brazil are run by public power. About three-fourths of those services are provided by state-level organizations. If government agencies could work well with other private companies, so much more can be accomplished.


BNDES will continue to collaborate with the states that need help financially. The drop in water levels in Brazil can be directly related to the movement of financial resources at the state companies of the water sector.


Private enterprises have more resources than government-run companies. It is important that the government is willing to work with private enterprises to prevent water from going to waste. There should be more investments in sewage systems.
