The sanitation sector was also hit massively with 417 projects remaining stagnant. The CNI study found out that the collapse of projects is majorly caused by limited resources allocated to the infrastructure sector.

The education sector was also affected by the unprecedented events despite its projects being less complex and cheap. Felipe Montoro Jens, infrastructure expert, said that CNI had predicted the collapse of projects in the education sector. More about of Felipe at infomoney.com
In an effort to shade more light on the state-of-projects, the study revealed that land ownership problems, expropriation, technical problems, abandonment of projects by companies as well as financial and budgetary difficulties contributed to the failure of projects to sail through to completion.
Ilana Ferreira attributed the shocking state of projects to technical problems as well as the economic crisis in the country. She continued to say that poor planning and execution of projects was also a major contributing factor.
According to Felipe Montoro Jens, the economic crisis in the country made the government to control its expenditure by cutting down on resources allocated to projects in a move to contain the situation. Therefore, it hurt the projects in the process.
