La prevención de catástrofes, la ayuda de emergencia y la reconstrucción son los tres campos de intervención de la Ayuda Humanitaria de la COSUDE. Corresponden, respectivamente, a un compromiso antes, durante y después de las crisis, los conflictos armados y las catástrofes.

La prevención designa el conjunto de las medidas previas adoptadas para proteger a la población y la infraestructura. Todos los proyectos y programas de la COSUDE fomentan la prevención de riesgos y la reducción de la vulnerabilidad, como parte del desarrollo sostenible. La ayuda de emergencia tiene por cometido principal salvar vidas y aliviar el sufrimiento en el momento álgido de una crisis. Dos tercios de los fondos gestionados por la Ayuda Humanitaria de la COSUDE se destinan a la ayuda de emergencia. Tras la emergencia y una vez que la situación se ha estabilizado, pueden comenzar los trabajos de reconstrucción y de rehabilitación. En situaciones de conflictos prolongados, el compromiso en estos tres campos de intervención puede ser simultáneo. 

La protección de la población es una de las cuatro prioridades temáticas de la Ayuda Humanitaria de la COSUDE, además de la reducción del riesgo de catástrofes, del agua, de las instalaciones sanitarias y de la violencia sexual y por motivos de género.

Reducción del riesgo de desastres

Los desastres naturales afectan tanto a los países ricos como a los pobres, pero las repercusiones varían en función del nivel de desarrollo.

Reconstrucción y rehabilitación

El propósito general de la reconstrucción y rehabilitación es el restablecimiento de las condiciones de vida de la población afectada.

Ayuda inmediata y ayuda de emergencia

La ayuda de emergencia de la Confederación, con sus expertos del Cuerpo Suizo de Ayuda humanitaria (CSA), interviene en crisis, conflictos y catástrofes a nivel mundial.

Protección

Los conflictos armados y los desastres naturales exponen a los supervivientes a riesgos de violencia física y psíquica.

IRQ Oxfam – Integrated WASH and Protection response to conflict affected communities in Diyala governorate

01.09.2017 - 28.02.2020

A majority of people living in rural northern Diyala do not have access to potable water which results in communities utilizing unsafe sources like rivers and irrigation channels. The lack of solid waste management systems further aggravates the poor health conditions within this area. This project aims at reducing water and sanitation related risks and increasing access to clean water for IDPs, returnees and host communities living in the districts of Kifri and Khanaqin. It also helps particularly vulnerable families access protection services.


Sierra Leone Landslide: Contribution to IFRC Emergency Appeal

23.08.2017 - 24.08.2018

On the night of 13 August 2017, the city of Freetown in Sierra Leone and its outskirts experienced torrential rains and landslides. At least 400 people were killed following the collapse of a hillside. 600 people are still missing and 3’000 were displaced. Through this contribution, Switzerland will assist 9’600 victims and affected people in Freetown with emergency and recovery services to improve the condition of shelter, water sanitation and hygiene as well as health care.


Support to Portugal in fighting wildfires

19.08.2017 - 15.11.2017

Wildfires in Portugal this year have accounted for more than one third of the burnt forest in the entire 28-nation European Union. As national capacities are not sufficient to end successfully the blazes, Portugal requested international support, which is delivered by Marocco and EU states. August 18 Switzerland received and positively answered an official request from the Portuguese government.


Intervention en santé mentale et soutien psychosocial pour les migrants au Niger

15.08.2017 - 28.02.2019

2016 environ 200,000 migrants sont passés par le Niger sur l’axe Niger-Lybie/Algérie. Ces migrants sont souvent exposés à des violations graves des droits de l’homme et des traumas. Seule une petite proportion des migrants bénéficie d’une forme d’assistance couvrant les besoins essentiels (santé, abri, nourriture). Une réponse aux traumatismes subis est quasi inexistante. Par ce co-financement, la Suisse contribue donc au renforcement d’une réponse santé mentale/psychosociale ainsi que d’autres services de protection pour les migrants au Niger pour préserver leur bien-être et le potentiel de développement humain.


Regional Vulnerability Assessment and Analysis (RVAA)

01.08.2017 - 31.03.2022

The project supports the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and its Member States in reducing vulnerability of households to disaster risks by increasing their preparedness for response and recovery and in strengthening their resilience. This will be achieved through institutionalising and sustaining vulnerability assessments and analyses systems that enhance emergency and developmental responses at national and regional levels.


Cameroun: CRf-Accès aux soins et résilience

01.08.2017 - 28.02.2018

Par son appui financier au projet de la Croix-Rouge française, la DDC contribue au renforcement des capacités de résilience des populations affectées par le conflit (hôtes, personnes déplacées internes, réfugiées et retournées) les plus vulnérables socio économiquement tout en garanttissant un accès aux soins de qualité pour les enfants de moins de 5 ans et les femmes enceintes et femmes allaitantes. 



Mercy Corps: Rapid responses to movements of populations through cash based programming

01.08.2017 - 08.06.2018

Eastern DRC has faced a crisis for over twenty years and humanitarian needs remain acute. A combination of persistent armed conflict, forced and prolonged displacements, epidemics poor governance and poor service delivery have fostered high vulnerability within the population. Providing multi-sectoral assistance will helpp address the diversity of needs in communities in crisis, especially those of displaced people. SDC's contribution to Mercy Corps (MC) is specifically earmarked to provide assistance through unconditional, multi-purpose cash transfers. 


Intergovernmental Process on Strengthening Respect for International Humanitarian Law (IHL)

01.08.2017 - 31.07.2018

The 32nd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent of December 2015 recognized the imperative need to improve compliance with IHL and mandated Switzerland, together with the ICRC, to facilitate an “intergovernmental process to find agreement on features and functions of a potential forum of States and to find ways to enhance the implementation of IHL using the potential of the International Conference and IHL regional forums”. As in the previous phase of the project (01.09.2016 to 31.07.2017), Switzerland, jointly with the ICRC, will continue to organize and facilitate negotiation meetings in Geneva, open to all States, with a view to strengthening the international system for reinforcing respect for IHL.



ICRC Programme for Humanitarian Impact Investment (PHII) on Physical Rehabilitation

10.07.2017 - 31.12.2022

The ICRC will increase its response to the needs for physical rehabilitation especially in fragile and conflict- affected countries by raising more funds outside the traditional governmental donors of the ICRC. The Programme for Humanitarian Impact Investment (PHII) is a financing mechanism, with the aim to fund the construction and operation of physical rehabilitation centres through the mobilization of the private sector to support humanitarian outcomes. The Programme will develop new measures to improve the efficiency of physical rehabilitation centres providing services, and it will also allow to measure results. Switzerland will participate in the PHII as an Outcome Funder recompensing the ICRC for their services according to measurable results (Payment by Result Agreement, PbR).
