Cambiamenti climatici e ambiente

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.

Progetti attuali

Oggetto 1 – 12 di 108

Soutien au Dispositif National de Sécurité Alimentaire -PRESA-

01.07.2022 - 31.12.2025

Malgré l’excédent céréalier enregistré durant ces deux dernières décennies, l’insécurité alimentaire touche près du ¼ de la population du Mali. La DDC veut renforcer les capacités institutionnelles et organisationnelles du dispositif national de sécurité alimentaire en vue d’améliorer la prévention et la gestion des crises conjoncturelles et accroître la résilience des populations vulnérables à l’insécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle.

01.01.2022 - 31.12.2027

Natural resources, particularly water and pasture, are among the key determinants of pastoralist livelihoods’ sustainability. The proposed Project contributes to the outcomes of the SDC’s Food Security Domain as stipulated in the Swiss Cooperation Strategy Horn of Africa. It aims at improving pastoralist food security and adaptive capacities in the lowlands of Borana Zone, Southern Ethiopia, through enhancing the sustainable management of natural resources.



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.


Energising Development - Support to the Energising Development (EnDev) Partnership

01.07.2021 - 31.12.2024

Providing sustainable access to needs-based and climate-friendly energy services to households, health centres, schools, and small enterprises improves the livelihoods of beneficiaries through reduced indoor air pollution, improved access to information, enabling of revenue generating activities, and enhanced quality of public services, all while reducing CO2 emissions. Energising Development (EnDev) is an impact-oriented partnership of Switzerland and other donor countries supporting universal energy access.


Promotion de l‘emploi et de revenus non agricoles dans la région des Grands Lacs grâce à la production de matériaux de construction respectueux du climat (PROECCO)

01.01.2021 - 31.12.2024

La forte demande en matériel de construction due à l’urbanisation rapide dans la région des Grands Lacs prédispose ce secteur à la création d’emploi et à offrir une perspective économique au grand nombre de jeunes dans la région. L’introduction par le projet PROECCO de briques améliorées, abordables et neutres en CO2 répondant aux normes de résistance et de durabilité a créé une forte demande. Pour la troisième phase, il s’agit d’appuyer le secteur privé à augmenter la production pour satisfaire la demande et d’atteindre les effets escomptés en emplois et en réduction des émissions de CO2


Contribution to the UN-REDD Pro-gramme (single phase)

15.12.2020 - 31.12.2025

Forests are a central solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, their sustainable management is an imperative for the planet but also for millions of vulnerable people. The UN-REDD Programme is a key player in accelerating the implementation of appropriate policies and actions in tropical low and lower-middle income countries to reduce deforestation and restore forests. The contribution will allow for a strong Swiss engagement jointly with the Federal Office of the Environment, and for the capitalization of existing work of the four SDC domains on forest ecosystems and related livelihoods.


Strengthening the climate resilience portfolio of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery

01.12.2020 - 30.11.2024

Climate change is an amplifier of natural hazards and a threat to human lives, sustainable development and poverty reduction. The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) of the World Bank aims to substantially increase investments in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. Building on Switzerland’s role as champion and custodian of climate resilience within GFDRR, it will support climate mainstreaming in all GFDRR activities.


Low Carbon Cement (LCC) - Phase 3 (Exit Phase)

15.09.2020 - 14.09.2022

Cement production contributes significantly to global warming. This phase aims at the commercial deployment of a new cement type (LC3) which emits 15-30% less CO2 compared to standard cements. LC3 was extensively researched by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) with partners in Cuba and India. Industrial deployment will be achieved through commercial production and application by the construction sector mainly in India and Latin America with support of the project.

01.09.2020 - 31.12.2023

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) finances low-emission and climate-resilient development projects and programs with a focus on the most vulnerable countries. The Swiss contribution to GCF’s first formal replenishment period 2020-23 places Switzerland amongst the top ten donors based on per capita contributions. Switzerland advocates in the GCF governing board for impact-oriented projects with maximum development co-benefits, social inclusion and effective private sector engagement. 


Fighting COVID-19 and strengthening the health infrastructure with sustainable energy

01.09.2020 - 30.06.2022

The electrification of healthcare facilities is an important enabler of the quality and functioning of essential health services, including for the diagnosis and management of COVID-19 patients. At the same time, survival of the mini-grid and offgrid industry is key for providing everyone with sustainable energy access. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Switzerland supports a joint initiative by the World Bank, Gavi and the World Health Organisation to accelerate electrification of health care facilities and provide liquidity to financially suffering mini-grid and offgrid companies.
