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.
