Cambiamenti climatici e ambiente

Gli effetti del cambiamento climatico non conoscono frontiere geografiche. Riguardano l’intera popolazione mondiale e sono particolarmente tangibili laddove le basi vitali delle persone dipendono direttamente dalla natura. Il cambiamento climatico comporta povertà, fame e catastrofi naturali.

I cambiamenti climatici globali mettono gli attori che lavorano nel campo dello sviluppo a confronto con nuove sfide; infatti i Paesi e i gruppi di popolazioni poveri sono molto più toccati da questi mutamenti rispetto a quelli ricchi. Il cambiamento climatico incide sullo sviluppo e minaccia i progressi già raggiunti. Per tale motivo la tutela del clima e la gestione del cambiamento climatico assumono un’importanza sempre maggiore nel quadro della cooperazione allo sviluppo. Il Programma globale Cambiamento climatico della DSC tiene particolarmente conto di questa tendenza.

Gestione sostenibile delle foreste

Con misure specifiche nell’ambito dello sfruttamento della terra e del bosco si può compensare ogni anno una parte significativa delle emissioni di gas a effetto terra a livello planetario.

Approvvigionamento energetico

Servizi energetici moderni e un utilizzo efficiente dell’energia sono un presupposto per ottimizzare i processi di produzione e migliorare le condizioni di vita delle persone.

Finanziamento della protezione del clima

La Svizzera tiene conto del cambiamento climatico nella sua politica di sviluppo e mette a disposizione conoscenze specialistiche, soluzioni tecniche e mezzi finanziari per la protezione del clima.

Adattamento ai cambiamenti climatici

Mediante il Programma globale Cambiamento climatico, la DSC sostiene le popolazioni particolarmente vulnerabili di vari continenti nel quadro dell’adattamento ai cambiamenti climatici.

Regioni di montagna: sviluppo sostenibile degli ecosistemi sensibili

Le regioni di montagna sono lo spazio vitale per un quinto della popolazione mondiale e la fonte di approvvigionamento idrico per metà di essa. La Svizzera, Paese di montagna, si impegna per uno sviluppo sostenibile nelle regioni montuose.

Oggetto 13 – 24 di 119

Capacity Building for Low Carbon and Climate Resilient City Development in India (CapaCITIES)

16.07.2019 - 15.07.2023

India is rapidly urbanizing. The growing Indian cities are affected by climate change but are also important emitters of greenhouse gases. Phase 2 of CapaCITIES aims at enabling climate responsive urban planning in eight cities and two states. Swiss expertise in waste management, transport, water and climate finance will support development of solutions for low-carbon and climate resilient cities. The results of the project in India will be shared through global reporting mechanisms and city coalitions.


Climate Ledger Initiative (CLI)

01.06.2019 - 31.05.2022

The Climate Ledger Initiative (CLI) addresses one of the world’s most pressing problems, climate change, with one of the potentially most promising technological innovations – blockchain. Through its platform function CLI brings together a variety of stakeholders from private and public sector to test pilot applications of the still new distributed ledger technology for effective climate action and development achievements. With its contribution to CLI SDC fosters innovation, development gains through applied technology development in developing countries and contributes to the global norm setting in this rapidly evolving field. 


Waste Collection and Transportation Management in Ulaanbaatar (WCTM)

01.04.2019 - 31.03.2023

The project aims to contribute to an effective, efficient and financially sustainable collection and transportation system for solid waste in Ulaanbaatar, based on Swiss and international practices. The intervention will contribute to improve the services, introduce a transparent tariff system and support the implementation of the new law on waste management. It targets the underserved and least developed areas of the capital (ger areas) where most poor people reside, aiming at decreasing inequalities.


Municipal environmental management

01.04.2019 - 31.03.2023

Based on its significant expertise in the field of sustainable waste and wastewater management Switzerland supports Bolivia in addressing its environmental challenges by consolidating models of sustainable management of wastewater treatment services and solid waste management for small and intermediate cities. In coordination with the Ministry of Environment and Water, it contributes to the implementation of public policies reinforcing the quality and efficiency of environmental services, involving local populations and institutions. This will reduce harmful effects on the health of the population.



Contribution to the Sixth Assessment Cycle of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

01.03.2019 - 30.06.2022

The Intergovemental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides governments with scientific evidence to inform climate policies and international climate change negotiations. The project will strengthen evidence and representation of mountain regions from developing countries in the next IPCC report, strengthen the IPCC science-policy dialogue in Switzerland on these matters, establish science-policy dialogues in 5 dev. countries and launch a mentoring programme for young climate scientists.


Financial support to the Programme of Work and Budget (PWB) of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) 2019-2020

01.01.2019 - 31.12.2020

Switzerland’s support to the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) aims at maximizing the impact of international development cooperation towards achieving the sustainable development goals in the least developed countries, ensuring that no one is left behind, while catalyzing support from other actors to finance sustainable development in a complementary and coordinated way.


Programme contribution to Caritas 2019-2020

01.01.2019 - 31.12.2020

Founded in 1901 as a catholic organisation, Caritas Switzerland (CACH) prevents, alleviates and combats poverty, while working across sectors and focusing on food security, access to clean and safe water, climate protection and disaster prevention, migration and education for children and adults. With its international programme that combines humanitarian work and development, CACH reaches out to 30 countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia as well as in Eastern Europe.


Contributions to OCHA Field Operations in 2019

01.01.2019 - 31.12.2019

OCHA’s mission is to coordinate the global emergency response, to save lives and protect people in humanitarian crises. OCHA advocates for effective and principled humanitarian action by all, for all, in partnership with national and international actors in order to alleviate human suffering in sudden-onset disasters and protracted crises. It is responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent and timely response to emergencies. Therefore, SDC seeks to provide support to OCHA field and regional offices in relevant humanitarian contexts, in line with SDC geographic and thematic priorities.


Gestión integral del agua

01.01.2019 - 31.12.2022

In Bolivia, Switzerland has been supporting the Ministry of the Environment and Water in improving integrated water and watershed management for several years. In this last phase of the project, support is given to the consolidation and implementation of the “Plan Nacional de Cuencas” (National Watershed Plan) to ensure water security and increase the climate resilience of vulnerable populations. Consolidation includes better coordination among various state levels, sectors and institutions and the systematization and capitalization of experiences and results.


Adaptation to Climate Change in Mountains

15.12.2018 - 30.09.2027

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.


Swiss Contribution to the Global Forest Financing Facilitation Network (GFFFN)

15.12.2018 - 31.12.2021

Many developing countries do not have the capacity to tap the different financial opportunities available for financing sustainable forest management (SFM). The Swiss contribution to the Global Forest Finance Facilitation Network (GFFFN) will provide catalytic support in the form of capacity building and technical expertise to promote the development of meaningful action and finance.
