The political upheavals in 2011 initiated a long and uncertain transition in North Africa. Switzerland's efforts focus on supporting the political, economic and social transition in these countries. The projects there are geared towards promoting democracy and human rights, sustainable and inclusive economic development and employment and issues to do with migration and protection.

Democratic transition and human rights

Switzerland helps to strengthen the rule of law, human rights, political dialogue and civil society. In Tunisia, Switzerland supported the electoral processes since 2011 and provided experts on constitutional issues. Switzerland also helps Tunisia and Egypt to deal with the legacy of the past and supports their public institutions’ efforts to become more transparent.

State and Economic Reforms

Engagement in fragile contexts and prevention of violent conflicts

Sustainable and inclusive economic development and employment

Switzerland helps to improve economic prospects by running innovative and pragmatic projects, with a view to boosting international competitiveness and economic conditions.  It also shares its experience in vocational education and training, supports young entrepreneurs and creates jobs. Another Swiss priority is promoting the sustainable use of natural resources.

Basic education and vocational training

Private Sector Development and financial services 

Migration and protection

North Africa has a tradition of strong migratory flows within its different countries and the region and of being a point of departure for Europe for people leaving their homelands for economic or conflict reasons. Many of them fall victim to violence, racism and exploitation, particularly women and children. Switzerland works with local authorities, the diaspora abroad and international and bilateral organisations, protecting and assisting vulnerable migrants, refugees and victims of human trafficking and promoting their rights

Migration

History of cooperation

Since 2011, Switzerland’s activities in North Africa have been implemented by various Federal Administration offices: the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the Human Security Division (HSD), the FDFA’s Directorate of Political Affairs, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM). Switzerland focuses on three thematic priorities in the region: democratic transition and human rights, sustainable and inclusive economic development and employment, and migration and protection. In Egypt and Tunisia, Switzerland is active in all three of these areas, while in Morocco it carries out a more limited programme. Switzerland provides humanitarian aid in Libya and Algeria, and is also active in peacebuilding in Libya.

Inclusive Green Growth in Egypt

01.01.2024 - 31.08.2028

Egypt is facing economic challenges among which high poverty and high unemployment rates impact the most marginalized to a greater degree. This new program contributes to an innovative and inclusive development approach to promote the green economy[1] through utilizing agricultural waste and other untapped profitable green resources to make use and leverage local resources to strengthen the livelihoods of vulnerable communities in Upper Egypt and create jobs.

Planned project

Strengthening the capacities of Community Based Organizations (CBOs) serving migrants in Egypt

01.01.2022 - 31.12.2024

In Egypt, Community Based Organizations (CBOs) are the key actors in responding to migrant’s basic needs. The aim of this program is to strengthen the CBOs through organizational capacity development and network building. This will lead to sustainable services for migrants and empower the CBOs to advocate for migrant’s needs in the donor community and with decision makers.


IGGE : Inclusive Green Growth in Egypt

01.09.2019 - 31.12.2023

The main barriers to the competitiveness of the total 2.5 million micro-small-medium enterprises in Egypt are a lack of affordable funding and a mismatch between the needs of the market and the skills available. With its proven expertise in micro-small-medium enterprises Switzerland supports economic growth and more efficient use of resources in Upper Egypt through the model of green economy such as utilizing agricultural waste to create jobs and strengthen livelihoods of communities.


Enhance employability of migrants in Urban Cairo

01.07.2019 - 31.08.2022

Egyptian Red Crescent: Providing primary health care services to migrants and Egyptians in Greater Cairo

01.12.2018 - 30.11.2020

Access to public primary health care for migrants and Egyptians is a serious challenge. By the means of two “Mobile Clinics”, the project will answer to immediate medical needs of migrants and Egyptians in Greater Cairo. Advocacy on protection and health issues among decision makers will contribute to filling the gaps in service delivery. Thanks to its experience and ongoing engagement in health and protection in Egypt, Switzerland is well placed to provide early recovery and self-resilience interventions.


Appui à la résilience de l’élevage pastoral en Afrique de l’Ouest

01.10.2018 - 30.09.2021

L’Afrique de l’Ouest connait une crise alimentaire qui touche environ 10 millions de personnes dont beaucoup d’éleveurs. Les plans de réponse des Etats et des institutions régionales ne mettent pas assez l’accent sur les éleveurs. Ce programme fournira une aide d’urgence à 174’240 éleveurs vulnérables de la région et améliorera les outils de distribution de l’aide dans les mécanismes régionaux et nationaux de gestion de crises alimentaire. Il réduira les conflits, en limitant les transhumances précoces.


Strengthening the capacities of Community-Based Organisations (CBOs) serving migrants in Egypt

15.04.2018 - 30.11.2021

In Egypt, Community Based Organisations (CBOs) are key actors in responding to migrant’s[1] basic needs. These include child and adult education, emergency assistance, medical and legal services. The project strengthens the ability of these organisations to provide these much-needed services. Moreover, CBOs will be empowered to advocate for migrant’s needs in the donor community and with decision makers. Reliable and sustainable services for migrants in Egypt also serve the migration interests of Switzerland.

 

[1]  The term migrant in this proposal includes refugees, asylum seekers, new arrivals in the “pre-refugee status determination phase”, (all nationalities identified by UNHCR) and vulnerable migrants (irregular and regular) residing in Egypt.

 




Potable Water Management Programme (PWMP) in Upper Egypt

01.07.2017 - 31.12.2027

Egypt is a water scarce country and has enormous needs in better managing water resources and reducing water losses as well as water consumption, as a prerequisite for inclusive economic development. This programme contributes to improved potable water management and service provision in the targeted affiliated Water & Wastewater Companies (WWCs) and to providing equal access to a reliable potable water supply system to deprived and informal areas in the economically disadvantaged governorates of Upper Egypt.

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.

01.06.2014 - 31.07.2016

Due to reinforced security controls at European boarders, an increasing number of irregular migrants remain blocked in Morocco. Despite some improvement since the announcement of the new migration policy, abuse of migrants still persists. Stranded migrants live in very precarious conditions and as a result many of them wish to leave Morocco and return to their home-countries. This project responds to a humanitarian need and offers stranded, irregular migrants the possibility to return and to be reintegrated into their countries of origin.
