Brazil enjoys presenting itself as a pro-ecology country. It’s true that our energy matrix consists of cleaner sources than those of more developed countries, which is a point of national pride. However, sewage services remain a luxury in Latin America’s biggest country, being accessible to just 50% of our population – and 35 million Brazilians have no access to treated water supplies. Period. That puts Brazil behind far poorer countries, like Peru, Bolivia, or even Venezuela.
