El agua, un recurso vital amenazado

©COSUDE

La presión sobre los recursos hídricos se acentúa a nivel mundial: la demanda aumenta de manera espectacular mientras que la disponibilidad se mantiene limitada. Uno de los desafíos del siglo XXI consiste en gestionar este recurso vital y velar por una distribución equitativa y favorable al desarrollo. En calidad de depósito acuífero de Europa, Suiza cuenta con conocimientos acreditados en la gestión sostenible del agua, lo que le confiere una gran credibilidad en la Cooperación Internacional.

El crecimiento demográfico, la urbanización, el cambio climático, la contaminación medioambiental, los nuevos usos de los suelos y el desarrollo económico tienen un impacto directo en los recursos hídricos. En el año 2025, dos tercios de la población vivirá en zonas castigadas por la escasez de agua. Repartir el agua entre los usuarios garantizando la igualdad social, la eficacia económica y la viabilidad ambiental constituye una cuestión clave para el desarrollo. La COSUDE se muestra activa en materia de agua desde hace más de 30 años. Sus intervenciones abarcan diferentes ámbitos: cuestiones sociales, medio ambiente, economía, gobernanza, promoción de la innovación y la tecnología, transferencia de conocimientos, así como agua y paz (Blue Peace).

UNICEF - RRM

01.05.2018 - 28.02.2019

La DDC par son appui financier au mécanisme de réponse rapide (RRM) dirigé par UNICEF participe à un financement rapide qui aide la communauté humanitaire à répondre aux activités d'urgencepermettant d'améliorer les conditions de vie des personnes vulnérables aiguës affectées par un choc humanitaire et la préservation de leur sécurité et dignité. Le RRM maintien une capacité de veille humanitaire, d'évaluation et de réponse rapide aux besoins urgents identifiés en biens non alimentaires et en eau et assainissement. 


Programme de Renforcement de la Gestion Locale de l’Eau Potable et l’Assainissement - REGLEAU

01.04.2018 - 31.12.2029

Aujourd’hui, seuls 58% des Haïtiens ont accès à l’eau potable et moins de 30% d’entre eux bénéficient de services de base d’assainissement. En cause, le manque de gouvernance et de capacité d’autofinancement du secteur. La DCC entend renforcer les capacités de gestion des municipalités et de la Direction Nationale d’Eau Potable et d’Assainissement (DINEPA) grâce à une meilleure maîtrise d’ouvrage au niveau des Collectivités Territoriales.


Sustainable water management for food security and nutrition in agriculture and food systems

01.04.2018 - 31.03.2027

Agriculture accounts globally for 70% freshwater use. Inefficient water use, water pollution, climate change and increasing global water demand puts agriculture under pressure, as well for smallholders. SDC can build on successful experiences in this domain and will support projects in Africa in ecologically sustainable water management in smallholder agriculture and food systems, improve smallholders’ economic and social situation and increase the resilience of their livelihoods.


RUNRES: The rural-urban nexus: Establishing a nutrient loop to improve city region food systems.

01.04.2018 - 30.04.2023

Implemented by the Institute for sustainable Agroecosystems of ETHZ, RUNRES will seek to improve the resilience and sustainability of food systems in four different rural-urban regions across Africa. It will encourage nutrient & waste recycling by installing and redirecting the byproducts of innovative, ecological, hygienically safe sanitation solutions. The organic matter may then serve as an input for smallholder producers to generate a circular flow of nutrients in agriculture, reinvigorating thus regional food systems.


Blue Lifelines – Safeguarding Wetlands in the Sahel

01.04.2018 - 30.06.2023

The relevance of wetlands for food security and nutrition is underestimated worldwide and in the Sahel in particular. Experiences from the project sites in Mali and Ethiopia and from previous efforts have the potential to change Sahelian and global approaches and to be scaled-up through attracting investments by international financing institutions. The project is implemented by Wetlands International, Caritas Switzerland and a Swiss technology company hydrosolutions Ltd.


Rural Water Supply Network (Core contribution)

15.03.2018 - 31.12.2020

Universal access to safe, affordable water is at the core of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the realisation of human rights. Achieving this in rural areas presents some particular challenges linked to poverty, discrimination and poor infrastructure. The Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) is the only global network to offer powerful, effective mechanisms to share expertise and collaborate with local and global partners to trial and scale up innovation and to raise the quality and professionalism in rural water supplies.


Promoting Water Stewardship 2030

01.03.2018 - 31.12.2020

Water stewardship fosters responsible private engagement in water. This programme aims at shaping the collaboration with the private sector for the benefit of society and natural resources. This SDC contribution will promote and institutionalize multi-stakeholder water dialogue by supporting several public-private partnership initiatives. It will facilitate exchange of knowledge leading to changes in practices and behaviours across sectors and stakeholders.


Scaling up of the comprehensive model of water and sanitation for promotion of territorial peace to rural areas of 6 departments of the country (ASIR-SABA)

06.02.2018 - 30.04.2020

SDC will continue, on one hand, supporting the implementation of the institutional strengthening plans in Valle and Cauca in order to guarantee the closing of processes that initiated during the phase 1. On the other hand, the scaling-up of the technical assistance model proposed by SABA will start in la Guajira, Boyacá, Antioquia and Nariño. This project aims to contribute to peacebuilding in rural territories though improving the quality of life of the rural population, through differential schemes that allow sustainable management for the provision of water and sanitation (W & S).


Research for action: Water, Behaviour Change and Environmental Sanitation: Sustainable Solutions to Research, Knowledge and Professionalization (WABES)

01.02.2018 - 31.12.2021

To answer the global challenge of improving access to safe water and adequate sanitation, essential for poverty reduction, health, economic development and a life in dignity, it is necessary to work at two levels: developing and using appropriate technology and techniques, but also working on the institutional frameworks and human capacities. To this aim, SDC has decided to partner with a Swiss Research Institute, long-term collaborator well recognised internationally.


Rural Water Supply Network

01.02.2018 - 31.12.2030

Universal and equitable access to safe water is especially in rural areas still far from being accomplished and the rural water supply sector is highly fragmented. The Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) is the only global professional network for rural water supply professionals and researchers across 150 countries. It works to raise standards of knowledge and evidence, technical and professional competence, practice and policy in rural water supply to ultimately contribute to sustainable rural water services for all.
