Upcoming Opportunities in the Brazilian Water Market

The market for private sector water and wastewater concessions in Brazil is red hot right now, with new legislation supporting a front-loaded investment programme aimed at universalising sanitation services by 2033, at a cost of $125 billion. GWI is hosting an interactive virtual meeting with key players in the country to help you unlock the potential of this lucrative market. A panel discussion with state-owned and private water operators, national development bank BNDES, and representatives from the legal community will guide you through the opportunities and pitfalls, and will be followed by a networking session so you can make the contacts you need to get ahead.

  • Join our panel of experts to learn the answers to these questions and more:
  • How is the new legislation accelerating Brazil’s roll-out of water and wastewater infrastructure?
  • What opportunities are on offer, and how are they being structured so as to maximise value?
  • How can non-Brazilian players position themselves to add value in this fiercely competitive market?
