Brazil proposes $133.89 bn for new sanitation project

The new sanitation project aims at the universalisation of basic sanitation by 2033. Currently, 100 million people do not have sewage collection and 34 million are without drinking water. Currently, only 6% of cities are served by private initiative. In the other 94%, the service is provided by state-owned companies. The estimated cost of the project is R$700 billion ($133.89 billion).
