La inequidad de género es uno de los mayores obstáculos para el desarrollo sostenible, el crecimiento económico y la reducción de la pobreza. La COSUDE actúa para que las mujeres y los hombres desarrollen sus potenciales en condiciones de equidad y puedan emplear sus recursos adecuadamente.

La pobreza sigue teniendo una marcada dimensión de género: los estudios internacionales revelan que alrededor del 70% de las personas que viven en la pobreza extrema son mujeres. Las leyes y las normas sociales suelen situar a las niñas y a las mujeres en desventaja a la hora de acceder a la salud, a la educación, a los puestos en las instancias decisorias, a los recursos financieros y a los mercados.

A menudo las mujeres se encuentran en relaciones laborales precarias en sectores poco productivos y carecen de seguridad social. Además, ganan menos que los hombres. Las mujeres también tienen menos influencia que los hombres en los procesos de decisión sociales, políticos y económicos, y con frecuencia son víctimas de la violencia, la discriminación y la exclusión por razón de género.

La COSUDE aboga por la igualdad de derechos y de condiciones entre la mujer y el hombre e integra a los hombres y a los niños en sus actividades en materia de género. Representa sus intereses de forma transversal, es decir, en todos sus proyectos y estrategias. Sus ámbitos prioritarios de intervención son los conflictos y los contextos frágiles, la economía y la política.

Con la “Estrategia del DFAE sobre igualdad de género y los derechos de las mujeres”, aprobada en 2017, la igualdad entre los hombres y las mujeres pasó a ser un pilar importante de la política exterior de Suiza. El Mensaje para el período 2017-2020, que orienta la cooperación internacional de Suiza, incluye por primera vez de forma explícita el objetivo de consolidar la igualdad de los géneros y los derechos de las mujeres y las niñas. Suiza está además comprometida con la aplicación de la Agenda 2030 de las Naciones Unidas para el desarrollo sostenible, cuyo objetivo 5 es lograr la igualdad entre los géneros y empoderar a todas las mujeres y las niñas. Es un Estado parte de la Convención sobre la Eliminación de Todas las Formas de Discriminación contra la Mujer, aprobada por las Naciones Unidas en 1979 (CEDAW, por sus siglas en inglés). La igualdad entre mujeres y hombres se enuncia en el art. 8, párr. 3 de la Constitución Federal de 1999.

Igualdad y derechos de las mujeres en los conflictos y los contextos frágiles

La COSUDE implementa la Resolución 1325 de las Naciones Unidas. Los temas prioritarios son la prevención y la protección frente a la violencia de género en zonas de conflicto y la participación de las mujeres en los procesos de paz.

Aumento de la participación política de las mujeres

La COSUDE trabaja para que las mujeres y los hombres puedan ejercer sus derechos y deberes civiles en condiciones de equidad.

Acceso a los recursos naturales, la formación y los ingresos

Las mujeres desempeñan un papel fundamental en la seguridad alimentaria y la reducción de la pobreza. Para ello, necesitan tener acceso a los recursos naturales, la formación y los ingresos.
