Rifugiati e sfollati interni: Aiuto umanitario e protezione della popolazione

La DSC offre assistenza ai rifugiati e agli sfollati interni inviando esperti sul posto, erogando aiuti finanziari alle ONG e alle agenzie umanitarie internazionali e collaborando con le autorità locali.

Nella linea di mira della DSC

L'Aiuto umanitario della DSC concentra gran parte del proprio impegno sull’assistenza e sul sostegno ai rifugiati e agli sfollati interni.

Tre quarti dei rifugiati sono concentrati in Paesi in via di sviluppo che non dispongono delle risorse necessarie per accogliere simili flussi di persone e offrire loro una protezione efficace. I profughi arrivati per mare, i cosiddetti «boat people», sono impossibilitati sia a proseguire il proprio viaggio sia a tornare nel Paese d'origine. L'irregolarità della loro situazione li espone a minacce fisiche, a furti e violenze nonché alla tratta di esseri umani.

Contrariamente ai rifugiati, gli sfollati interni non hanno varcato alcun confine nazionale, bensì sono stati costretti a fuggire da una regione all'altra del loro stesso Paese. Le loro sorti ricadono nella competenza di Governi e autorità locali che, molto spesso, non sono in grado o non vogliono assumersi alcuna responsabilità in merito. In questo caso, la Comunità internazionale si fa carico della loro protezione offrendo un aiuto diretto e sviluppando un quadro giuridico adeguato.

Contesto

In caso di migrazioni dovute allo scoppio di una crisi, la DSC adotta misure immediate che rientrano nel quadro dell'aiuto d'emergenza e della ricostruzione, ma il fenomeno delle migrazioni, complesso ed esteso a livello mondiale, richiede ben altri interventi.

Impiego di esperti

L'aiuto umanitario può pertanto assumere forme diverse, come  l'impiego di esperti incaricati della protezione delle vittime di conflitti armati, il supporto alle autorità locali oppure la distribuzione di denaro alle famiglie che accolgono rifugiati affinché possano godere di condizioni di vita migliori.

La DSC mette a disposizione dell'ACNUR esperti del Corpo svizzero di aiuto umanitario (CSA). Nel 2016, 24 esperti del CSA hanno svolto missioni per conto dell'ACNUR in 14 Paesi tra Africa, Asia, America Latina e Medio Oriente. L'ACNUR ha beneficiato delle competenze del CSA in vari settori quali le risorse idriche e il risanamento, la legislazione e la costruzione di ripari.

Un ulteriore pilastro dell'impegno della DSC è il progetto interdipartimentale «Protezione nella regione» e volto a offrire quanto più velocemente possibile protezione ai rifugiati nella propria regione d'origine e ad aiutare i Paesi di prima accoglienza a garantire la tutela necessaria a queste persone.

Reconstruire au-delà de l’urgence 

Un fenomeno in crescita

L’instabilità che caratterizza numerose regioni del mondo porta centinaia di migliaia di persone ad abbandonare il proprio Paese d'origine. L'ACNUR stima che nel 2016 rientreranno nelle sue competenze circa 61.4 milioni di persone (rifugiati, apolidi e sfollati in seguito a conflitti o persone che intendono tornare a casa), le quali avranno bisogno di protezione e assistenza.

Impegno in Siria

Dal 2011, la Svizzera offre aiuto umanitario e protezione alle popolazioni colpite dalla crisi siriana. La DSC attua azioni dirette in loro soccorso, realizzate da esperti del Corpo svizzero di aiuto umanitario (CSA) e presta un contributo finanziario sostanziale alle iniziative multilaterali del Comitato internazionale della Croce rossa e delle agenzie dell'ONU, supportando altresì alcune ONG operanti in loco.

20,000 people (of whom 70% women) who have experienced trafficking will be economically and socially rehabilitated. Public and private institutions will provide employment or in-kind support for entrepreneurship to men and women who have escaped trafficking. The Government will better address the prevention of trafficking, protection of victims, prosecution of traffickers in the revision and enacting of policies, and create partnerships, for bringing about systemic changes.


Building Regional and National capacities for improved Migration Governance in the IGAD Region

01.01.2022 - 31.08.2027

The Horn of Africa is of high interest for Switzerland in terms of migration policy. Swiss support to the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and its Member States will contribute to improve their migration governance capacities so as to enable the organisation to effectively implement regional, continental and global regulatory standards for the protection of refugees and vulnerable migrants in the region.


Fair and ethical recruitment of migrant workers

01.11.2021 - 31.12.2023

Approximately 105 million people are currently working outside their country of origin. Many of these migrant workers have profited from international labour recruitment intermediaries. Millions, however, have become victims of abusive and exploitative practices by unethical recruiters. Working together with different actors, SDC will support initiatives to ensure fair and ethical recruitment. Migrants and their families will be better protected and thereby better enabled to contribute to the development of their countries of origin and destination.


Supporting the Security Sector Reform (SSR) Process in The Gambia

01.07.2021 - 30.06.2024

The Gambia, which is a priority country in regard to Swiss migration interest, initiated a national SSR process in 2017. Based on 3 years of in-depth research and support to this process, in 2021 DCAF launched a new program to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the Gambian security sector. Through its contribution, Switzerland aims to improve the quality of services provided to local communities by the immigration department by strengthening its management and accountability.

The programme aims to maximise the benefits of migration for sustainable development in Sri Lanka. It will support government institutions and other actors in implementing policies related to fair and ethical recruitment, skills development and provide reintegration support for returning migrants in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. A special focus is placed on elevating migrant workers’ voices in advocacy. The intervention creates entry points to engage with the newly elected government in Sri Lanka. 


PSTIC: Provision of protection and humanitarian assistance to vulnerable migrants in Greater Cairo

21.08.2020 - 20.08.2021

The increase in migrants and refugees residing in Egypt, coupled with shrinking humanitarian funding are leaving many at protection risk. With new challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the protection risks have risen and needs are exacerbated. This project will respond to the immediate protection needs of refugees and migrants by providing a comprehensive package of gender sensitive emergency protection services in Greater Cairo, with a special focus on women and children at risk. 


The "Bosnia i Herzegovina"-Platform

01.07.2020 - 31.12.2025

The Bosnia i Herzegovina Platform (BiH) is an initiative of diaspora associations that are already involved in development activities. The platform will enhance cooperation and strengthen the diaspora associations’ role as development actors. SDC aims at promoting the potential of migrants for sustainable development mainly through improved framework conditions. The permanent platform as an effective and dynamic network will set the grounds for competent coordination services to diaspora organizations, to the country of destination and to the country of origin.


Water and Comprehensive Sanitation Project in Rural Areas (ASIR – SABA), Phase III

01.06.2020 - 31.07.2022

The ASIR-SABA Project aims to contribute to the sustainable management and governance of water and sanitation, as well as public health, as a contribution to the consolidation of peace in rural areas of the country. To achieve its objective, the project promotes dialogue between the different actors of the WASH sector in Colombia. It also aims to strengthen the capacities at the community and institutional level (national, departmental and municipal) for the co-management of water and sanitation in rural areas of the country.

Based on the achievements capitalized by the project in its first and second phases and the challenges and opportunities identified with the different governmental actors of the WASH sector in Colombia, the SDC implements the third and final phase of the ASIR-SABA project.


Global solutions for migration related challenges

01.01.2020 - 31.03.2023

The challenges and opportunities linked to migration require a coordinated response from the international community that goes beyond individual country measures. For this reason, Switzerland works towards an effective global migration governance that enables cooperation among states and other stakeholders (private sector, civil society). Switzerland also supports evidence-based policy making and the development of global solutions to contemporary migration challenges that benefit migrants and their families, as well as countries of origin and destination.


IDB Migration Initiative (Clean drinking water and sanitation program for la Guajira)

01.10.2019 - 30.09.2022

Switzerland supports to the newly created Migration Initiative of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) that was created in support of Latin American and Caribbean migrants and their host communities and accordingly contributes to deter grave development crisis by empowering communities to foster integration and consequently to strengthen stability of the region and Colombia in particular.
