Los cambios climáticos mundiales plantean nuevos desafíos a los actores del desarrollo. ©CCO

Los efectos producidos por el cambio climático no conocen fronteras geográficas. Afectan a toda la población mundial y son particularmente perceptibles allí donde los medios de subsistencia de la población dependen directamente de la naturaleza. Las consecuencias son pobreza, hambre y  catástrofes naturales.

Los cambios climáticos mundiales plantean nuevos desafíos a los actores del desarrollo debido a que afectan mucho más a los países y grupos de población pobres que a los ricos. El cambio climático tiene un impacto negativo en el desarrollo y pone en peligro los logros ya alcanzados. Es la razón por la que la protección del clima y la gestión del cambio climático adquieren cada día mayor importancia en la cooperación al desarrollo. El Programa global Cambio climático de la COSUDE tiene especialmente en cuenta esta tendencia.

Explotación forestal sostenible

Las medidas en materia de explotación agrícola y forestal tienen el potencial de compensar significativamente la emisión de gases de efecto invernadero producida actualmente en el mundo.

Vulnerabilidad y adaptación

Con el Programa global Cambio climático, la COSUDE presta especial apoyo a los grupos de población más vulnerables en distintos continentes en el ámbito de la adaptación al cambio climático.

Financiación de la lucha contra el cambio climático

Suiza integra la lucha contra el cambio climático en su política de desarrollo, aportando conocimientos especializados, soluciones técnicas y medios financieros.

Aprovisionamiento energético

Disponer de servicios energéticos modernos y utilizar eficientemente la energía son requisitos previos para optimizar los procesos de producción y lograr mejores condiciones de vida para la población.

Regiones de montaña – Desarrollo sostenible y adaptación al cambio climático

Las montañas son el hábitat de un quinto de la población mundial y la fuente de agua dulce para la mitad de todos los habitantes del planeta. Por tal motivo, Suiza promueve un desarrollo sostenible de las regiones de montaña.
