Klimawandel und Umwelt

Die weltweiten Klimaveränderungen stellen die Entwicklungsakteure vor neue Herausforderungen. © CCO

Die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels kennen keine geografischen Grenzen. Sie betreffen die gesamte Weltbevölkerung und sind dort besonders spürbar, wo die Lebensgrundlagen von Menschen direkt von der Natur abhängen. Die Folgen des Klimawandels sind Armut, Hunger und Naturkatastrophen.

Die weltweiten Klimaveränderungen stellen die Entwicklungsakteure vor neue Herausforderungen, da arme Länder und Bevölkerungsgruppen viel stärker davon betroffen sind als reiche. Der Klimawandel beeinträchtigt die Entwicklung und gefährdet  bereits erreichte Fortschritte. Aus diesem Grund gewinnen der Klimaschutz und der Umgang mit dem Klimawandel in der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit zunehmend an Bedeutung.

Nachhaltige Waldnutzung

Massnahmen in der Wald und Landnutzung haben das Potenzial, ein Vielfaches des aktuellen, weltweiten Treibhausgas-Ausstosses pro Jahr zu kompensieren.

Energieversorgung

Moderne Energiedienstleistungen und eine effiziente Nutzung von Energie sind Voraussetzungen für optimierte Produktionsprozesse und bessere Lebensbedingungen der Menschen.

Finanzierung des Klimaschutzes

Die Schweiz schliesst den Klimawandel in ihrer Entwicklungspolitik ein. Sie stellt Fachwissen, technische Lösungen und finanzielle Mittel für den Klimaschutz bereit.

Klimaanpassung

Mit dem Globalprogramm Klimawandel unterstützt die DEZA besonders verwundbare Bevölkerungsgruppen auf verschiedenen Kontinenten bei der Anpassung an den Klimawandel.

Berggebiete

Berge sind Lebensraum für einen Fünftel der Weltbevölkerung und Wasserquelle für die Hälfte davon. Die Schweiz als Bergland setzt sich für eine nachhaltige Entwicklung von Berggebieten ein.

Pakistan: ADB, National Disaster Risk Management Fund (NDRMF)

01.12.2016 - 30.11.2019

Pakistan faces significant disaster risk and lacks institutional capacity and finance to tackle it. The National Disaster Risk Management Fund will enhance resilience of vulnerable communities, especially in KP and FATA, to natural hazards and will strengthen institutional capacity of authorities to disaster prevention, mitigation and preparedness. This will reduce socio-economic vulnerability of the people to natural hazards and ultimately poverty.


Climate and Clean Air in Latin American Cities Plus Programme (CALAC+)

25.11.2016 - 31.07.2021

CALAC+ supports clean air strategies in Latin American metropolises fostering normative and technological changes towards application of soot-free engines in public urban transport systems and off-road machinery. The reduction of air pollutants that are both an important impediment to sustainable development and a key contributor to climate change will be achieved by means of, targeted capacity building, sharing experiences and curbing private sector engagement in clean air issues.


Ecuador, Technical Support in Earthquake Resistant Reconstruction

18.10.2016 - 31.12.2018

An earthquake of the magnitude of 7.8 (Richter scale) hit Northern Ecuador, on 16 April 2016. Damages were widespread, collapsing structures within hundreds of km’s from the epicenter. Following SDC/HA’s emergency and early recovery interventions, SHA will provide the Ecuadorian government with technical support in capacity building on earthquake resistant construction, capitalizing SDC’s experiences from Pakistan and Haiti.
