The scope of the destruction in Syria is staggering, and the number of people left without shelter continues to grow. Since the start of the crisis, the SDC has donated CHF 13.4 million to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which is responsible for coordinating all reconstruction-related activities in that country. In addition, Swiss experts have developed technical standards for the long-term relocation of displaced people who will eventually return home.

Volunteer neighbourhood rescue teams in Morocco

In a country like Morocco, where the natural elements can cause serious events to occur, swift intervention is crucial in order to save lives. To better manage such situations, some Moroccan towns rely on their own residents to back up the emergency services.  The SDC supports this initiative and is helping to train volunteer "neighbourhood rescue teams".

Switzerland brings to North Africa its internationally recognised expertise in security sector reform

01.11.2011 - 31.12.2016

The uprisings in North Africa at the beginning of 2011 were directed to a considerable extent against the security forces on which the dictatorial regimes of Egypt, Libya and Tunisia have relied for decades. There is an urgent need for reorientation of the armed forces of the state – army, police and security services – to ensure a successful democratic transition. Thanks to the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of the Armed Forces (DCAF) Switzerland is able to offer internationally recognised expertise in this area. Partner countries receive on request rapid, tailor-made support in carrying out security sector reform. Despite a number of similarities the challenges in Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Egypt are quite different.

ALCS: Assistance des Migrants subsahariens Victimes de Violences Sexuelles

01.07.2016 - 31.12.2017

Les Migrant(e)s Subsaharien(ne)s (MSS) sont particulièrement expoé(e)s aux violences au cours de leur voyage migratoire comme lors de leur séjour au Maroc. Les conséquences de ces vilences se répercutent sur leur santé physique et mentale, ainsi que sur leurs conditions sociales. Parmi les MSS, les femmes et leurs enfants sont les plus vulnérables. Ce projet vise à offrir aux migrant(e)s survivant(e)s des violences sexuelles une assistance médicale et sociale d'urgence ainsi qu'un suivi médical physique et psychologique. 


Caritas Maroc : Promouvoir l’exercice des droits humains des migrants au Maroc

01.04.2016 - 31.03.2019

Morocco is a country of transit and destination for migrants and refugees, 20’000 of which live on the margins of society, despite Morocco in 2014 adopting a first ever migration strategy, promising the respect of human rights and access to public services. Caritas enables 3’000 vulnerable migrants per year - mainly women and children - to translate access rights into access reality, and coaches public and civil society service providers to care for the specific needs of the new clients.

Allocation of SDC Funding to ICRC Operations in 2016

01.01.2016 - 31.12.2016

In line with the Good Humanitarian Donorship (GHD) principles, Switzerland recognizes the necessity of predictable and flexible funding to respond to changing needs in humanitarian crises. SDC funding to ICRC operations allows the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to respond proactively and to provide immediate protection and assistance for people affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence.


Swiss Capacitiy-Building Facility (SCBF): North Africa Contribution

10.12.2015 - 31.12.2018

Formal financial inclusion is critical for pro-poor economic growth and remains low in North Africa. The intervention aims to increase well-being and livelihood of low-income people and smallholder farmers, through financial inclusion. The SCBF focuses on tailor-made technical assistance to partner financial institutions to up-scale sustainable and client-oriented financial services offered responsibly. The contribution leverages the expertise of the SCBF for financial inclusion in North Africa and seeks synergies with other North Africa projects.


Gestion intégrée des bassins versants au Moyen Atlas

20.11.2015 - 31.12.2017

L’érosion des sols au Maroc, sévère dans les montagnes de l’Atlas, est à la fois cause et indicateur des défis auxquels font face les populations vulnérables de la région: désastres naturels et précarité. L’intervention propose une approche innovante de gestion intégrée des bassins versants qui augmentera durablement la résilience des populations locales, tout en améliorant leurs conditions de vie. L’engagement fort du Maroc pour sa réplication future à l’échelle nationale permet un effet multiplicateur considérable.


ONU Femmes: Accès aux Services judiciaires pour des femmes et des enfants victimes de la traite des êtres humains au Maroc

01.09.2015 - 28.02.2018

Malgré les réformes initiées au niveau juridique et institutionnel, la traite des personnes reste un phénomène croissant au Maroc. La mise ne place d'un mécanisme national de lutte contre la traite coordonnée entre de nombreux services publics et les acteurs de la socitété civile est nécessaire pour une meilleure protection des victimes. Les récents développements juridiques et polititques ont dynamisé la lutte contre la traite. La phase actuelle du projet vise à améliorer la protection des victimes à travers un appui technique et une meilleure coordination.
