Changement climatique et environnement

Le bouleversement climatique mondial pose des défis majeurs aux acteurs du développement. © CCO

Les effets du changement climatique ne connaissent pas de frontières géographiques. Ils touchent tout le monde, partout sur la Terre, et frappent de manière particulièrement dure tous ceux et celles qui tirent leurs moyens de subsistance directement de la nature. Il en résulte pauvreté, famine et catastrophes naturelles.

Le bouleversement climatique mondial pose des défis majeurs aux acteurs du développement, puisqu’il affecte bien plus durement les pays et les groupes de population pauvres que les riches. Pesant toujours plus lourdement sur le développement, il va jusqu’à compromettre des succès déjà obtenus à ce jour. C’est pourquoi la protection du climat et la gestion des changements climatiques occupent une place croissante dans la coopération au développement. Le Programme global Changement climatique de la DDC tient compte de cette tendance.

Exploitation forestière durable

En appliquant un certain nombre de mesures portant sur l’exploitation des forêts et des terres, il serait possible de compenser plusieurs fois les quantités d'émissions de gaz à effet de serre produites actuellement chaque année.

Approvisionnement en énergie

L’optimisation des processus de production et l’amélioration des conditions de vie passent par la modernisation des services énergétiques et par une utilisation efficace de l’énergie.

Financement de la lutte contre le changement climatique

La Suisse intègre le changement climatique dans sa politique de développement. Elle propose de l’expertise, des solutions techniques et des moyens financiers en faveur de la protection du climat.

Adaptation au changement climatique

Dans le cadre de son Programme global Changement climatique, la DDC aide des groupes de population particulièrement vulnérables, sur différents continents, à s’adapter au changement climatique.

Régions de montagne

Les montagnes représentent l’habitat d’un cinquième de la population mondiale ainsi que le réservoir d’eau de la moitié de l’humanité. De par sa topographie, la Suisse a tout particulièrement à cœur de promouvoir le développement durable des régions de montagne.

Mountain ecosystems and societies are particularly sensitive to climate change. Targeted adaptation measures are essential to increase the resilience of livelihoods and ecosystems in mountains. The programme will harness Swiss expertise and generate information on climate change impacts and related adaptation strategies in mountains and feed them into regional science-policy platforms and global policy frameworks for adaptation planning in mountains.


Clean Air Project in India (CAP India)

01.10.2023 - 30.06.2027

India is one of the most severely affected countries by air pollution in the world. This project will contribute to India’s new National Clean Air Programme, with the aim to improve air quality with co-benefits on public health, environment and climate change. Capacity building and technical assistance through Swiss expertise will support data measurement and analysis, city level clean air action plans and awareness raising campaigns to take precautionary measures and mitigate air pollution.


Sustainable Natural Resources Management (NRM) for Enhanced Pastoralist Food Security in the Borana Zone, Ethiopia.

01.10.2022 - 31.12.2027

Natural resources, particularly water and pasture, are among the key determinants of pastoralist livelihoods’ sustainability. The proposed Project contributes to the outcomes of the SDC’s Food Security Domain as stipulated in the Swiss Cooperation Strategy Horn of Africa. It aims at improving pastoralist food security and adaptive capacities in the lowlands of Borana Zone, Southern Ethiopia, through enhancing the sustainable management of natural resources.


Soutien au Dispositif National de Sécurité Alimentaire -PRESA-

01.07.2022 - 31.12.2025

Malgré l’excédent céréalier enregistré durant ces deux dernières décennies, l’insécurité alimentaire touche près du ¼ de la population du Mali. La DDC veut renforcer les capacités institutionnelles et organisationnelles du dispositif national de sécurité alimentaire en vue d’améliorer la prévention et la gestion des crises conjoncturelles et accroître la résilience des populations vulnérables à l’insécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle.


KENYA - Strengthening Livestock Sector in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) Counties

01.04.2022 - 31.03.2026

60% of the population in northern Kenya depends on livestock production in an environment of recurrent droughts and natural resource-based conflicts. The programme will contribute to poverty reduction, improved resilience to shocks and enhanced socio-economic inclusion of pastoralist and agro-pastoralist men and women by supporting climate-smart livestock production, improving rangelands management and promoting peaceful coexistence of communities.


Global Energy Efficiency and Construction Outreach Programme (GLECOP)
