Una buona educazione è alla base dello sviluppo personale di ogni individuo e dello sviluppo economico e sociale di ogni società. L’istruzione contribuisce a ridurre la povertà e le disuguaglianze e stimola la crescita economica. La DSC persegue l’obiettivo di un’istruzione di qualità e accessibile a tutti in qualsiasi momento della vita adoperandosi in due settori prioritari: l’istruzione di base e la formazione professionale.

L’istruzione è essenziale per uno sviluppo sostenibile, che si fonda sulla coesione sociale e la pace in ogni società. L’obiettivo di un sistema educativo di qualità e accessibile, senza discriminazioni, in qualsiasi momento della vita è il quarto nell’elenco degli obiettivi di sviluppo sostenibile (OSS) dell’Agenda 2030. Insieme a quello di un lavoro dignitoso per tutti nell’ambito di una crescita economica duratura e all’obiettivo che punta a eliminare la povertà è al centro dell’impegno della DSC.

In quanto stimola una maggiore consapevolezza su vari piani, l’istruzione può anche contribuire a migliorare le pratiche sanitarie, a difendere l’idea di una produzione agricola responsabile o a sensibilizzare le popolazioni in merito agli effetti del cambiamento climatico.

È assolutamente necessario rafforzare i sistemi educativi in molti Paesi in via di sviluppo o in transizione. Garantire l’accesso all’istruzione è indispensabile inoltre nei contesti cosiddetti «fragili» in cui le disuguaglianze hanno la tendenza ad aggravarsi.

La DSC si impegna nello sviluppo di offerte di qualità nel campo dell’istruzione di base e della formazione professionale. Agli occhi della DSC queste due componenti sono interconnesse e complementari. E non soltanto in una prospettiva lineare di apprendimento. A seconda delle esigenze e dei contesti, può essere interessante proporre insieme moduli di istruzione di base e moduli di formazione professionale: si offrono così più opportunità di integrazione nel mondo del lavoro ai giovani, che possono dimostrare di avere all’attivo una serie di competenze di base.

Il rafforzamento delle offerte educative nei Paesi in via di sviluppo e in transizione è una delle priorità della cooperazione internazionale della Svizzera nei prossimi anni. 

Istruzione di base

La DSC promuove un’istruzione di base adeguata alle esigenze delle popolazioni, di elevata qualità e accessibile a tutti. A questo scopo affianca numerosi Paesi nel processo di riforma dei loro sistemi educativi.

Formazione professionale

Lavorare con le autorità pubbliche e il settore privato permette di sviluppare offerte formative adeguate alle esigenze del mercato. Più giovani possono dunque trovare un lavoro dignitoso e contribuire allo sviluppo del loro Paese.
