Changement climatique et environnement

Le bouleversement climatique mondial pose des défis majeurs aux acteurs du développement. © CCO

Les effets du changement climatique ne connaissent pas de frontières géographiques. Ils touchent tout le monde, partout sur la Terre, et frappent de manière particulièrement dure tous ceux et celles qui tirent leurs moyens de subsistance directement de la nature. Il en résulte pauvreté, famine et catastrophes naturelles.

Le bouleversement climatique mondial pose des défis majeurs aux acteurs du développement, puisqu’il affecte bien plus durement les pays et les groupes de population pauvres que les riches. Pesant toujours plus lourdement sur le développement, il va jusqu’à compromettre des succès déjà obtenus à ce jour. C’est pourquoi la protection du climat et la gestion des changements climatiques occupent une place croissante dans la coopération au développement. Le Programme global Changement climatique de la DDC tient compte de cette tendance.

Exploitation forestière durable

En appliquant un certain nombre de mesures portant sur l’exploitation des forêts et des terres, il serait possible de compenser plusieurs fois les quantités d'émissions de gaz à effet de serre produites actuellement chaque année.

Approvisionnement en énergie

L’optimisation des processus de production et l’amélioration des conditions de vie passent par la modernisation des services énergétiques et par une utilisation efficace de l’énergie.

Financement de la lutte contre le changement climatique

La Suisse intègre le changement climatique dans sa politique de développement. Elle propose de l’expertise, des solutions techniques et des moyens financiers en faveur de la protection du climat.

Adaptation au changement climatique

Dans le cadre de son Programme global Changement climatique, la DDC aide des groupes de population particulièrement vulnérables, sur différents continents, à s’adapter au changement climatique.

Régions de montagne

Les montagnes représentent l’habitat d’un cinquième de la population mondiale ainsi que le réservoir d’eau de la moitié de l’humanité. De par sa topographie, la Suisse a tout particulièrement à cœur de promouvoir le développement durable des régions de montagne.

African Risk Capacity Programmes in Zambia and Zimbabwe

01.11.2021 - 31.10.2026

This programme will contribute towards strengthening national systems for disaster preparedness through support to drought insurance premiums and capacity building. Switzerland is thus consolidating its engagement in climate change mitigation and disasters risk reduction with the aim to sustainably minimize risk to loss of lives and assets for vulnerable men and women. The Africa Risk Capacity, a specialized agency of the Africa Union, will implement this programme. 


Enabling development through landmine clearance in the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor

01.11.2021 - 31.10.2023

Switzerland will contribute to achieve Zimbabwe’s 2025 landmine-free deadline by supporting a demining operation in the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor. The project implemented by APOPO seeks to return 84% of the remaining suspected contaminated area to local communities which will be used for agricultural development, ecotourism, and conservation, as well as to provide mine risk education so that food security is enhanced, general wellbeing is improved, and accidents are avoided.


Smart Packaging Waste Management

01.11.2021 - 30.04.2024

The prevalent improper management of waste in North Macedonia is a pressing environmental topic and a top priority of the Government. SDC supports North Macedonia by engaging with the non-profit private sector packaging recovery organization Pakomak to enhance the effectiveness, efficiency and transparency of the national packaging waste recovery system through the digitalisation of the primary selection and collection process.


UN CC:Learn – The One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership – Phase V

15.09.2021 - 31.12.2025

UN CC:Learn is the partnership of key multilateral organizations assisting member states in designing and implementing learning to address climate change. It supports countries in developing national strategies and designs and promotes learning materials to strengthen human resources and skills for climate resilient-development and global climate literacy. Switzerland’s focus therein is on further advancing the youth component and strengthening the sustainability aspects of the initiative.


SRBM - Strengthening Representative Bodies in Mongolia

Workshop on Parliament Monitoring

01.08.2021 - 31.12.2023

On request of the authorities, the project ensures the implementation and oversight over new local governance laws to ensure public service delivery and sustainable rangeland management. Based on SDC supported achievements on democratic governance in Mongolia, increased technical cooperation between the Swiss and the Mongolian Parliamentary Services is at the core of the project. Gender equality and pro-poor approaches are mainstreamed.


Climate and Clean Air in Latin American Cities Plus Programme Phase 2 (CALAC+ 2)

01.08.2021 - 31.07.2025

Phase 2 of the Climate and Clean Air in Latin American Cities Plus Programme (CALAC+) will support the consolidation and implementation of local and national measures to reduce emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases (GHG) from urban transport and non-road mobile machinery to protect the climate and human health. CALAC+ will foster normative and technological changes through regional cooperation, building on Swiss expertise, and share the programme’s experience at the global level. 


Voluntary Contribution to the Adaptation Fund (AF)

01.08.2021 - 31.12.2024

The Adaptation Fund (AF) has a proven track record for implementing innovative adaptation projects for those people most in need. AF projects increase overall resilience of vulnerable poor globally and in SDC partner countries and decrease the potential risk, that impacts of climate change could diminish achieved development outcomes across sectors. With this voluntary contribution and due to its recognized climate adaptation expertise, Switzerland ensures its representation in the governing body of the AF and increases its convening power.
