HOW Water Supply & Sanitation South-South Knowledge Exchange WORKS...

WSSKE - Water Supply & Sanitation South-South Knowledge Exchange seeks to connect between Brazil and other developing countries, providing access to relevant sources of information in the water and sanitation sector.

 

Experts and policymakers abroad may look deeper into Brazil’s solutions and examples, guided by their counterparts, and taking into account similar conditions.

 

As an emerging country, Brazil has been identified by The World Bank as a country that has achieved a great deal of progress towards the universalization of water and sanitation services, taking into account the presence of a wide array of various climates, diverse geographies, different political levels, social inequities, and a variety of business models among water and sanitation companies.

 

The Bank believes that Brazil’s successful experiences may provide a source of both inspiration and information in order to support decision-making in other developing countries. On the other hand, ABES is committed to mobilizing its network of stakeholders and partners in this initiative to the fullest possible extent.
