El hambre y la malnutrición no solo ponen en peligro la salud individual, sino también y de forma decisiva el desarrollo de los países. Por eso, la COSUDE se preocupa de que todos puedan disfrutar de una alimentación adecuada, suficiente y de buena calidad. En este sentido, otorga importancia a la cadena entera de valor añadido de los alimentos: desde los campos, donde se producen los alimentos, pasando por el almacenamiento y el tratamiento, los mercados, la venta y el transporte hasta el consumo.

La COSUDE se compromete a promover a escala mundial el derecho de los seres humanos a una alimentación adecuada. De este modo, concibe sus actividades con el objetivo de proporcionar a los grupos de población más pobres y discriminados, como los pequeños productores, las mujeres y los jóvenes, un acceso equitativo al conocimiento, los recursos productivos y los mercados. En este marco, la COSUDE les apoya en el uso productivo y a la vez cuidadoso de los recursos naturales, en la gestión de las repercusiones del cambio climático, en el almacenamiento y la comercialización de sus productos, así como en la adaptación permanente a unas condiciones medioambientales en constante cambio. En todo ello, presta especial atención a la preservación de la biodiversidad, que se encuentra en grave peligro. Asimismo, aboga por lograr unos sistemas de investigación y de asesoramiento adaptados a las necesidades.

La COSUDE fomenta también las innovaciones a lo largo de la cadena de valor añadido de los alimentos, que posibilitan a los consumidores una alimentación sana y variada o el acceso tanto en el campo como en las ciudades a dichos alimentos.

La agricultura sostenible que preserve la biodiversidad es la base para garantizar el derecho humano a una alimentación sana y adecuada. Con este objetivo primordial, Suiza se involucra en el ámbito de la seguridad alimentaria en la cooperación internacional. La agricultura suiza es todo un ejemplo gracias a su producción de alimentos multifuncional, asentada en el equilibrio social y regional, de base familiar y respetuosa con el medio ambiente

CGIAR holds in trust unique genetic resources for agriculturally significant species of central importance to advancing and sustaining productivity for the world’s smallholder farmers in the 21st century. CGIAR has a singular role in providing international and global public goods through high-quality agricultural research, partnership, and leadership in the areas of poverty and hunger reduction, improvement of human nutrition, enhancement of ecosystem resilience. 


Small Irrigation Programme (SIP)

01.01.2020 - 31.12.2024

Swiss engagement through this project assists farmers in doubling their agricultural income through year-round irrigation and better access to markets. Doubling of agriculture income will contribute to poverty reduction and reduce poor farmer’s need to migrate. In addition, Swiss pioneering work in operationalizing federalism, through this project at local level will address issues related to historic over-centralization and social exclusion and will contribute to peace and stability in the country.


Strengthening Drought Resilience in Pastoral and Agro-pastoral Areas of Somali National Regional State, Ethiopia (SDR - SNRS)

01.01.2020 - 30.04.2022

Pastoral and agro-pastoral livelihoods in Ethiopia's Somali National Regional State (SNRS) are increasingly threatened by environmental (climatic) changes and land degradation. GIZ along with Local Government partners aims at building the resilience of vulnerable pastoralist communities through proven land rehabilitation measures, the promotion of livelihood activities and capacity development of government and private sector institutions.


Responsible Agricultural Investments Leveraging (RAIL) by IFAD
