L’eau – Une ressource vitale menacée

©DDC

La pression sur les ressources en eau s’accentue dans le monde: alors que les besoins augmentent de manière spectaculaire, les volumes d’eau disponibles, eux, ne changent pas. L’un des défis du XXIe siècle sera de préserver cette ressource vitale et de veiller à sa répartition équitable et favorable au développement. En tant que château d’eau de l’Europe, la Suisse dispose de compétences reconnues en matière de gestion respectueuse de l’eau, ce qui lui confère une grande crédibilité dans le contexte de la coopération internationale.

La croissance démographique, l’urbanisation, le changement climatique, la pollution, les changements dans l’utilisation des terres et la croissance économique ont une incidence directe sur les ressources hydriques. En 2025, deux tiers de l’humanité vivront dans des zones sujettes à des pénuries d’eau. Pour le développement, il est essentiel que l’égalité sociale, l’efficience économique et la viabilité environnementale soient garanties lors de la répartition de l’eau entre les utilisateurs. La DDC est active dans le domaine de l’eau depuis plus de 30 ans. Ses interventions couvrent différents aspects: questions sociales, environnement, économie, gouvernance, promotion des technologies et de l’innovation, transfert de connaissances et dialogue politique ainsi que thématique «eau et paix» (Blue Peace).

Gestion durable

La DDC favorise l’utilisation efficiente de l’eau dans les activités économiques et la coopération pacifique dans les bassins hydriques internationaux

Priorité internationale

La DDC se mobilise pour que l’objectif de l’Agenda 2030 pour le développement durable concernant l’eau soit réalisé rapidement et que la communauté internationale accorde davantage d’attention à la gestion durable de l’eau

Accès universel

En réalisant des projets concrets et en menant un dialogue politique, la DDC œuvre pour que les droits humains en matière d’eau et d’assainissement soit garantis

Blue Peace: l’eau, un instrument de paix

Pour relever les défis que posent les besoins grandissants en eau dans le monde, la Suisse a défini des lignes d’action en matière d’eau et de sécurité (Swiss Toolbox for Blue Peace)

L’eau en crise

La protection de l’eau est l’un des plus grands défis: la demande augmente, mais la disponibilité stagne. La Suisse s’engage en faveur de l’accès à l’eau potable, d’installations sanitaires adaptées et d’une répartition équitable.

Objet 49 – 60 de 110

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.


Young People as Agents of Change in the Water Sector

01.01.2018 - 30.04.2021

Young people and their innovative ideas play an important role in addressing some of the largest water challenges. SDC supports the Young Water Fellowship Programme that builds the capacities of young water entrepreneurs, provides technical as well as financial support to implement their ideas and engages with stakeholders and decision-makers to exchange knowledge and create an enabling environment for young people willing to be engaged in the water sector.


Core Contribution for the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), 2018 - 2020

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2020

SDC has been granting core contributions to IUCN since 1997. The new Core Contribution for the period 2018 – 2020 aims to highlight IUCN’s comparative advantage and development relevance. With this core contribution SDC contributes to the implementation of the IUCN Programme 2017-2020 and in particular to the integration of healthy and restored ecosystems into SDGs water (SDG 6), climate change (SDG13), environment (14/15) and food security (SDG2).


Young People as Agents of Change in the Water Sector – Consolidation of SDC/GPW’s Pioneering Role

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2027

The project will facilitate the empowerment of young people in the water sector, which is essential to achieve the water-related SDG goals. The intervention will strengthen the current GPW/SDC portfolio, directly supports initiatives and projects, consolidate SDC’s institutional approach, and finally contribute to mainstream a young people approach into strategies and policies at all levels.


Rural Water and Sanitation Support Programme in Kosovo

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2022

Since 2005, the Swiss Rural Water and Sanitation Support Programme has provided better access to safe drinking water and sanitation to 474’000 people living in rural areas. By further strengthening the capacities of the water companies and their oversight bodies and with targeted infrastructure investments, the RWSSP exit phase will contribute to a sustainable and socially inclusive provision of high-quality water and sanitation services. For the first time the program will include the Northern municipalities of Kosovo.


Collaborative effort to address the global sanitation and hygiene challenge

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2020

The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is a member-based organization committed to address the sanitation and hygiene challenge. This SDC contribution will further at the global level the knowledge exchange, advocacy and communication on these issues.
