Cambio climático y Medio ambiente

Los cambios climáticos mundiales plantean nuevos desafíos a los actores del desarrollo. ©CCO

Los efectos producidos por el cambio climático no conocen fronteras geográficas. Afectan a toda la población mundial y son particularmente perceptibles allí donde los medios de subsistencia de la población dependen directamente de la naturaleza. Las consecuencias son pobreza, hambre y  catástrofes naturales.

Los cambios climáticos mundiales plantean nuevos desafíos a los actores del desarrollo debido a que afectan mucho más a los países y grupos de población pobres que a los ricos. El cambio climático tiene un impacto negativo en el desarrollo y pone en peligro los logros ya alcanzados. Es la razón por la que la protección del clima y la gestión del cambio climático adquieren cada día mayor importancia en la cooperación al desarrollo. El Programa global Cambio climático de la COSUDE tiene especialmente en cuenta esta tendencia.

Explotación forestal sostenible

Las medidas en materia de explotación agrícola y forestal tienen el potencial de compensar significativamente la emisión de gases de efecto invernadero producida actualmente en el mundo.

Vulnerabilidad y adaptación

Con el Programa global Cambio climático, la COSUDE presta especial apoyo a los grupos de población más vulnerables en distintos continentes en el ámbito de la adaptación al cambio climático.

Financiación de la lucha contra el cambio climático

Suiza integra la lucha contra el cambio climático en su política de desarrollo, aportando conocimientos especializados, soluciones técnicas y medios financieros.

Aprovisionamiento energético

Disponer de servicios energéticos modernos y utilizar eficientemente la energía son requisitos previos para optimizar los procesos de producción y lograr mejores condiciones de vida para la población.

Regiones de montaña – Desarrollo sostenible y adaptación al cambio climático

Las montañas son el hábitat de un quinto de la población mundial y la fuente de agua dulce para la mitad de todos los habitantes del planeta. Por tal motivo, Suiza promueve un desarrollo sostenible de las regiones de montaña.

Climate Risks and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) Partnership

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2025

The global Climate Risks and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) Partnership supports Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States in creating necessary human capacities to generate and communicate climate and weather risks timely and effectively. This allows to save millions of lives and significantly reduce economic losses caused by natural disasters and a changing climate. Providing Swiss development, humanitarian and insurance expertise to the CREWS Partnership will contribute to increased impact and sustainability of public and private investments in this field.


BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (BioCF-ISFL)

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2030

The BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (BioCF-ISFL) is a multilateral fund managed by the World Bank catalysing the development of low-carbon rural economies, fostering livelihoods and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from the land sector. It engages national and sub-national governments and the private sector through impact-based payment systems. Switzerland has an interest piloting such incentive systems in order to shape development cooperation that is fit for the future.



Disability: Community Based Development Muzaffargarh, Pakistan

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2020

Die CBM fokussiert auf die ärmsten und schwächsten Bevölkerungsgruppen – getreu dem Grundsatz «Niemanden zurücklassen» (Leave no one behind) im Hinblick auf die Umsetzung der Agenda 2030. Deshalb spielt die CBM seit über dreissig Jahren eine wichtige Rolle bei der Inklusion von Menschen mit Behinderungen, namentlich von sehbehinderten und blinden Menschen. Die DEZA wird über die Abteilung Institutionelle Partnerschaften, die für das Thema «Disability» zuständig ist, einen Pilotbeitrag zur Verbesserung der Lebensbedingungen von Menschen mit Behinderungen leisten.


Support to Climate Change Management (GestionCC )-Phase 2

01.12.2018 - 31.05.2021

All countries are faced with the challenge of translating the landmark Paris Agreement on Climate Change at the national level. Switzerland and Peru have both innovated in setting up the governance structures needed to tackle climate change. This project aims to improve Peru’s ability to successfully implement its commitments under the Paris Agreement[1] and to share its experience in Latin America and globally in order to raise ambition in climate change adaptation and mitigation.


African Forests, People and Climate Change

15.11.2018 - 31.12.2021

The African forestry sector holds considerable potential for mitigating and facilitating adaptation to adverse impacts of climate change that severely threaten the development of Sub-Saharan Africa. Support to the African Forest Forum ensures that policies and action base on the improved understanding about the relationship between climate change, forests and trees and that these elements will be reflected in their revised nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the climate convention.


Cosecha de Agua (Water Harvesting)

01.11.2018 - 31.12.2022

This project strengthens the food security of 2,500 families and responds to the challenges of climate change and the economic crisis in Nicaragua’s dry corridor. The second phase of the project is intended to systematize and replicate on a larger scale water harvesting and other practices for more efficient use of water resources. In the interest of enhanced implementation efficiency and effectiveness, the participation of the government is reduced and a contribution to a specialized international organization is proposed.


UNDP – Disaster Risk Management in Cox’s Bazar District

01.11.2018 - 31.12.2019

The location, climate and topography of Cox’s Bazar District makes it vulnerable to tropical cyclones and associated storm surges, flash flooding, and landslides. The influx of the Rohingya refugees have raised the population of an already poor, disaster prone-district to 3.5 million people, requiring significant upgrading of disaster risk management capacities. The project supports a comprehensive approach to developing local capacities and enables risk informed-decision making.


Air Pollution Impact on Health

01.10.2018 - 31.12.2022

This project aims at reducing the risks of air pollution to maternal and child health in urban Mongolia targeting the most polluted areas of Ulaanbaatar and one province centre. This sector governance project establishes evidence linking air pollution and its health impact, pilots and improves risk reduction measures for children and pregnant women, and both will inform policy making. Swiss know-how will be applied, i.e. through involvement of the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.


Plant Variety Protection Legislation and Farmers’ Rights in Developing Countries

01.10.2018 - 30.09.2022

Plant variety protection legislation in accordance with the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) is gaining importance in developing countries. This kind of legislation often neglects the existing informal seed systems and Farmers’ Rights. SDC supports APBREBES, a network of civil society organizations, to raise awareness and contribute to capacity building on alternative legislation that better reflect smallholders’ needs and practices.


China: Rehabilitation and management strategy for over-pumped aquifers under a changing climate

01.09.2018 - 31.12.2021

In the past 30 years the aquifers in the North China plain have been over-exploited. Based on cutting-edge Sino-Swiss expertise in real-time groundwater monitoring and modelling, the project will implement groundwater and agricultural management policies to stabilize groundwater levels as a buffer to climate change induced droughts. The project will work with farmers and local authorities to facilitate policy uptake. Findings are relevant for many water-stressed countries and will be shared globally.


Disaster Risk Reduction for Sustainable Development in Bosnia and Herzegovina – Joint UN Project

01.09.2018 - 31.12.2022

High exposure to natural hazards coupled with insufficient technical, organizational, and financial capacities of BiH’s institutions and governments directly impede the country’s socio-economic development and increase population vulnerability. This Project, jointly implemented by five UN Agencies, will reduce the social and economic vulnerabilities of citizens and institutions affected by disasters and climate change by introducing and operationalizing an integrated model of disaster risk governance and livelihood enhancement starting with selected local municipalities.
