WSSKE - Water Supply & Sanitation South-South Knowledge Exchange

That is the name of our project, is an initiative of World Bank and the Brazilian Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering (ABES) to give easy and sustainable access to Brazilian water supply and sanitation sector knowledge.


Nowadays, between the emergent economies, Brazil is the leadership in water supply and sanitation sector (WSSS). In some cases, the country is 20 or even 40 years ahead of other developing countries. Because of this leadership, there are many requests to the World Bank’s Brazilian office to receive delegations from other parts of the world to visit and learn about the different aspects of water and sanitation sector in Brazil.


These visits, called Study Tours, are the core concept of the Project, to exchange knowledge in Water Supply and Sanitation Sector.
