The pressing need for investments in basic sanitation in Brazil makes it necessary to seek structured financing mechanisms to meet the requirements of investments in works for the sector. According to data released in 2020 by the National Sanitation Information System – SNIS, 16% of the Brazilian population, or approximately 35 million people, have no access to treated water, and only 46% of the sewage generated in Brazil is treated. In addition, 47% of the Brazilian population – almost 100 million people – do not have access to sewage systems. These numbers result in a huge challenge for the authorities and for the public health system, due to the diseases resulting from deficiencies in water and sewage treatment that affect the population that does not have access to such service.
