Klimawandel und Umwelt

Die weltweiten Klimaveränderungen stellen die Entwicklungsakteure vor neue Herausforderungen. © CCO

Die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels kennen keine geografischen Grenzen. Sie betreffen die gesamte Weltbevölkerung und sind dort besonders spürbar, wo die Lebensgrundlagen von Menschen direkt von der Natur abhängen. Die Folgen des Klimawandels sind Armut, Hunger und Naturkatastrophen.

Die weltweiten Klimaveränderungen stellen die Entwicklungsakteure vor neue Herausforderungen, da arme Länder und Bevölkerungsgruppen viel stärker davon betroffen sind als reiche. Der Klimawandel beeinträchtigt die Entwicklung und gefährdet  bereits erreichte Fortschritte. Aus diesem Grund gewinnen der Klimaschutz und der Umgang mit dem Klimawandel in der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit zunehmend an Bedeutung.

Nachhaltige Waldnutzung

Massnahmen in der Wald und Landnutzung haben das Potenzial, ein Vielfaches des aktuellen, weltweiten Treibhausgas-Ausstosses pro Jahr zu kompensieren.

Energieversorgung

Moderne Energiedienstleistungen und eine effiziente Nutzung von Energie sind Voraussetzungen für optimierte Produktionsprozesse und bessere Lebensbedingungen der Menschen.

Finanzierung des Klimaschutzes

Die Schweiz schliesst den Klimawandel in ihrer Entwicklungspolitik ein. Sie stellt Fachwissen, technische Lösungen und finanzielle Mittel für den Klimaschutz bereit.

Klimaanpassung

Mit dem Globalprogramm Klimawandel unterstützt die DEZA besonders verwundbare Bevölkerungsgruppen auf verschiedenen Kontinenten bei der Anpassung an den Klimawandel.

Berggebiete

Berge sind Lebensraum für einen Fünftel der Weltbevölkerung und Wasserquelle für die Hälfte davon. Die Schweiz als Bergland setzt sich für eine nachhaltige Entwicklung von Berggebieten ein.

Support of the UN Con-vention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)

01.01.2020 - 31.12.2022

1.5 billion people in more than 100 countries are affected by desertification and 42% of the world’s poor live in these areas. 12 million hectares of land are lost by desertification every year. The UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) links sustainable land management to social and economic development to achieve its goal of combating desertification/land degradation and mitigating the effects of drought. 


Strengthening State Strategies for Climate Actions (3SCA)

01.01.2020 - 31.12.2024

Responding to the Government of India’s request for Swiss expertise in disaster risk reduction and water resource management in mountain ecosystems, the project will support the Himalayan States of Uttarakhand and Sikkim to improve resilience against climate change in these sectors. Through relevant Government institutions, the project will build capacities for replication of project inter-ventions in the 12 Himalayan States, support policy uptake and share results regionally and globally. 


Promoting efficient, affordable and clean cooling for everyone (PEACCE)

15.12.2019 - 31.12.2023

 

This project addresses increasing heatwaves by providing people of developing and emerging countries with access to efficient, affordable and clean cooling. The project will address both climate change mitigation and adaptation while improving the health, nutrition and productivity of people living in hot climates. This will be achieved by supporting select countries to set ambitious commitments on cooling in their climate policies. Swiss experience on climate-friendly cooling will be shared. 


African Risk Capacity (ARC)

10.12.2019 - 31.12.2022

The African Risk Capacity is a disaster risk management pool and early response mechanism established by the African Union member states against natural disasters like drought, flood, and tropical cyclones, and the outbreak of highly contagious diseases. Its drought insurance and the new insurance products for flood and tropical cyclones enhance the safety nets of smallholder households and thus contributes to food security in Africa.



Wyss Center Bern (WCB) – Shaping Sustainable Futures for Nature and People

15.11.2019 - 31.12.2023

The Wyss Center Bern Initiative is a new research and innovation set-up that should help address today’s complex global challenges related to nature conservation and human development. The initiative aims to develop new approaches to narrow the gap between research and practice and identify promising solutions to sustainable development challenges on several continents. The initiative also strengthens Switzerland’s profile on research for sustainable development.


Grassroots women building resilience and peace in Central America.

01.10.2019 - 31.12.2022

The project enables two thousand grassroots women and their families to implement effective climate adaptation practices and strengthen their voice and leadership to influence related public plans and policies. The exchange of good local practices will be fostered among women in the region, thus increasing their resilience to climate change and variability.


Landscape Fire Management in the Western Balkans

01.09.2019 - 31.12.2025

Due to a changing climate and unsustainable land use practices, landscape fires have been on the rise in the Western Balkans, while fire management remains generally weak and not adapted for mounting challenges. This initiative will improve capacities in landscape fire management through regional cooperation and strengthen policy and action at national level by articulating the region with multilateral efforts and Swiss know-how and expertise. Local communities, most concerned by landscape fires, will be an integral part of the initiative’s approach to facilitate the establishment of long-term strategies for resilient landscapes.


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

16.07.2019 - 30.06.2024

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 - 31.12.2022

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. 



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.
