Une approche axée sur les causes centrales des fragilités et de la résilience

La Suisse a considérablement accru son soutien aux régions fragiles et touchées par des conflits. Le message de la coopération internationale pour la période 2017-2020, approuvé par le Parlement, a augmenté de 50% l’aide bilatérale consacrée à ces pays.

Ces moyens sont alloués à la lutte contre les causes des conflits, au renforcement de la société civile, à l’encouragement du respect des droits de l’homme ainsi qu'à la promotion d'une gouvernance responsable au niveau national et local.

La DDC est active dans plusieurs pays et régions touchés par des conflits, latents ou ouverts, et affectés de manière prononcée dans une ou plusieurs dimensions de la fragilité, notamment en Afghanistan, en Afrique du Nord, au Burundi, dans la Corne de l’Afrique, à Haïti, au Mali, au Myanmar et au Népal.

De nouvelles pistes pour la coopération au développement

En 2015, les Etats membres de l’ONU ont adopté l’Agenda 2030 pour le développement durable. L’objectif de développement durable n°16 établit un lien direct entre des sociétés pacifiques, inclusives et des institutions fortes avec le développement durable. Cet objectif consacre la paix comme un sujet légitime de développement et matérialise ainsi l’engagement international pris à Busan en 2011 pour une «Nouvelle donne pour l’engagement dans les États fragiles».

Les considérations humanitaires, l'objectif d'un développement durable et l'amélioration de la sécurité mondiale sont autant de raisons qui militent en faveur d'efforts particuliers dans les contextes fragiles, malgré les risques accrus qu'ils présentent. Ces efforts s’inscrivent à la croisée des grands agendas internationaux pour la pérennisation de la paix, pour l’humanité ou pour les droits humains. Ces efforts reconnaissent enfin la nécessité d’adapter toute intervention à son contexte, tout en en percevant l’entière complexité.

Lutter contre les fragilités permet d’atteindre ceux qui sont le plus à risques d’être laissé pour compte

Les communautés les plus à risques sont celles qui sont affectées par des conflits armés chroniques et par les autres formes de violence, le manque d’accès à la justice, une corruption rampante, le manque de respect des droits humains, ou des institutions non-inclusives et non-redevables.

Les pays en situation de fragilité comptent parmi ceux ayant le moins bien réalisé les objectifs du millénaire pour le développement (OMD) avant 2015. Ils risquent également d’être laissés pour compte dans la réalisation des objectifs de développement durable (ODD) à l’horizon 2030. C’est pourquoi lutter contre les différentes formes de fragilités contribue directement à atteindre les populations laissées pour comptes, et en particulier les plus exposées.

Police Capacity Development on Election Security through the UNDP Election Support Program

01.04.2013 - 30.09.2013

On 11th May 2013, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will, for the first time in history, administer a transition from one full term democratic elected government to another. The probability of electoral violence threatens this opportunity. The police are the most important player in smooth conduct of election security. Yet, the majority of the police force has limited knowledge of electoral security protocol. With a contribution to the UNDP Election Support Program the capacity of police in election security will be enhanced.


Catastrophic Microinsurance in Central America

01.03.2013 - 31.03.2022

Central America is a natural disasters prone region where large vulnerable populations suffer over-proportionately from increasing frequency and impact of climate change events, as traditional disaster coping mechanisms are eroding with growing environmental pressures and rising urbanisation. The public-private development partnership with Swiss Re, FOMIN, and KfW’s Climate Adaptation Fund supports MiCRO in strengthening the disaster resilience of at least 80’000 vulnerable households by 30.9.2016.


Institutional Governance and Greater Financial Inclusion in microfinance

01.02.2013 - 30.09.2022

Financial services can be delivered in the long term only with sound, healthy financial institutions. Inappropriate Corporate Governance (CG) of microfinance institutions (MFIs) including Savings and Credit Unions / Cooperatives (Cooperatives) is the main cause for bankruptcy of the MFIs or over-indebtedness of their clients. Based on the experience of a SDC project in Central America on CG reforms and based on similar other relevant experiences and methodologies, FOMIN and SDC will promote CG reforms in Latin America and the Caribbean.



Reducing Health Risk Factors in Bosnia and Herzegovina

01.12.2012 - 31.08.2020

Chronic diseases are the main cause of death and disability in Bosnia and Herzegovina, entailing substantial costs for the country. Chronic diseases are to a large extent influenced by unhealthy lifestyles, which means that they can be prevented by changing behaviors. The project will facilitate an increased focus of country’s health system on preventive care, reducing behavioural risks factors among the population. In the longer term, strengthened prevention should lead to a reduction in chronic diseases and significant cost savings.



Rural microinsurance

01.11.2012 - 30.07.2020

Micro insurance is recognised as a useful tool for poverty reduction. However, costs for developing micro insurance products are too high for the private sector to assume them alone. SDC will share this risk with the PROFIN Foundation , who will validate the technical, legal and financial feasibility of commercialising agricultural micro insurances in Bolivia. With two pilots, this initiative will reach more than 1000 vulnerable men and women, who do not have access to adequate risk-management tools.


Energising Development - Support to the Energising Development (EnDev) Initiative

01.11.2012 - 31.12.2023

Providing sustainable access to modern and climate friendly energy services to households, health centres, schools, and small enterprises impacts the lives of the beneficiaries in many ways: improved cooking reduces the burden on women and girls of fire-wood collection and their exposure to indoor air pollution; access to improved lighting reduces health hazards and allows children to study; energy availability improves access to information and communication and extends the range of productive activities; and energy access improves the conditions and quality of services such as education and health; all while reducing CO2 emissions.


Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development - Research Module on Employment

01.09.2012 - 31.12.2023

SDC and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) are offering a new long-term funding scheme for development-relevant research on global issues (www.r4d.ch). The main focus lies on the generation of new insights and solutions as well as on the application of research results into policy and practice through partnership projects between researchers from Switzerland and from developing countries. The overall r4d.ch program consists of five thematic modules and a module for thematically open research. The second module focuses on employment in the context of sustainable development.


Third Sustainable Livelihoods Project (SLP3)

01.09.2012 - 31.12.2020

The Third Sustainable Livelihoods Project (SLP3) aims to foster improved rural local governance and effective service provision by building capacity and institutionalizing community participation in the planning and delivery of priority investments. It will do so by supporting the implementation of the new Integrated Budget Law (IBL), which is the centrepiece of the government’s decentralization reform process. SLP3 will provide essential training, development and performance grants to all 330 soums and benefit 40% of Mongolia’s population.


Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development - Research Module on Social Conflicts and Fragility

01.03.2012 - 31.12.2023

SDC and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) are offering a new long-term funding scheme for development-relevant research on global issues (www.r4d.ch). The main focus lies on the generation of new insights and solutions as well as on the application of research results into policy and practice through partnership projects between researchers from Switzerland and from developing countries. The overall r4d.ch program consists of five thematic modules and a module for thematically open research. The first thematic module focuses on the causes and solutions to social conflicts in the context of weak public institutions.
