“Aliança Água + Acesso” Program
Access to treated water is a huge challenge for Brazil. Today, it is estimated that 35 million people do not have access to treated water in the country, of which about 20 million live in rural areas.
The lack of access to water negatively impacts health and productivity and generates expenses for the public administration. Overcoming this challenge requires collective action by several players.
Aliança Água + Acesso (Water + Access Alliance) is an impact initiative. It was launched in 2017 and is led by a group of companies, institutes, and civil society organizations that cooperate to expand access to safe and sustainable water in rural areas and communities throughout Brazil.
The Alliance works on three fronts:
- Infrastructure for access and treatment,
- Community water management model, and
- Ecosystem integration and consolidation.
By 2021, the 16 allied organizations have already positively impacted more than 164,000 people in 8 semi-arid states and the Amazon.
