Cambiamenti climatici e ambiente

I cambiamenti climatici globali mettono gli attori che lavorano nel campo dello sviluppo a confronto con nuove sfide. © CCO

Gli effetti del cambiamento climatico non conoscono frontiere geografiche. Riguardano l’intera popolazione mondiale e sono particolarmente tangibili laddove le basi vitali delle persone dipendono direttamente dalla natura. Il cambiamento climatico comporta povertà, fame e catastrofi naturali.

I cambiamenti climatici globali mettono gli attori che lavorano nel campo dello sviluppo a confronto con nuove sfide; infatti i Paesi e i gruppi di popolazioni poveri sono molto più toccati da questi mutamenti rispetto a quelli ricchi. Il cambiamento climatico incide sullo sviluppo e minaccia i progressi già raggiunti. Per tale motivo la tutela del clima e la gestione del cambiamento climatico assumono un’importanza sempre maggiore nel quadro della cooperazione allo sviluppo. Il Programma globale Cambiamento climatico della DSC tiene particolarmente conto di questa tendenza.

Gestione sostenibile delle foreste

Con misure specifiche nell’ambito dello sfruttamento della terra e del bosco si può compensare ogni anno una parte significativa delle emissioni di gas a effetto terra a livello planetario.

Approvvigionamento energetico

Servizi energetici moderni e un utilizzo efficiente dell’energia sono un presupposto per ottimizzare i processi di produzione e migliorare le condizioni di vita delle persone.

Finanziamento della protezione del clima

La Svizzera tiene conto del cambiamento climatico nella sua politica di sviluppo e mette a disposizione conoscenze specialistiche, soluzioni tecniche e mezzi finanziari per la protezione del clima.

Adattamento ai cambiamenti climatici

Mediante il Programma globale Cambiamento climatico, la DSC sostiene le popolazioni particolarmente vulnerabili di vari continenti nel quadro dell’adattamento ai cambiamenti climatici.

Regioni di montagna: sviluppo sostenibile degli ecosistemi sensibili

Le regioni di montagna sono lo spazio vitale per un quinto della popolazione mondiale e la fonte di approvvigionamento idrico per metà di essa. La Svizzera, Paese di montagna, si impegna per uno sviluppo sostenibile nelle regioni montuose.

Adaptation to Climate Change in Mountains

15.12.2018 - 30.09.2027

Mountain ecosystems and societies are particularly sensitive to climate change. Targeted adaptation measures are essential to increase the resilience of livelihoods and ecosystems in mountains. The programme will harness Swiss expertise and generate information on climate change impacts and related adaptation strategies in mountains and feed them into regional science-policy platforms and global policy frameworks for adaptation planning in mountains.


Swiss Contribution to the Global Forest Financing Facilitation Network (GFFFN)

15.12.2018 - 31.12.2021

Many developing countries do not have the capacity to tap the different financial opportunities available for financing sustainable forest management (SFM). The Swiss contribution to the Global Forest Finance Facilitation Network (GFFFN) will provide catalytic support in the form of capacity building and technical expertise to promote the development of meaningful action and finance.


Climate Change Adaptation in Mountains

15.12.2018 - 30.11.2023

Mountain societies and ecosystems are highly sensitive to climate change and adaptation measures are needed to increase their resilience. The programme will harness Swiss expertise and generate knowledge on climate change impacts and adaptation solutions in mountains on the global level. It will feed expertise into regional science-policy platforms and global policy frameworks to advance adaptation planning, for the benefit of vulnerable mountain communities.


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.


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.



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.


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.


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.


UNDP – Disaster Risk Management in Cox’s Bazar District

01.11.2018 - 31.10.2020

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.


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.


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.
