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.

Waste Collection and Transportation Management in Ulaanbaatar (WCTM)

View of Ulaanbaatar city

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.


Strengthening Capacities for Energy Efficiency in buildings in Latin America (CEELA)

15.03.2019 - 31.10.2023

By strengthening capacities and regulatory frameworks in energy efficient and thermally comfortable housing in Ecuador, Colombia, Mexico and Peru the CEELA project will contribute to reduce CO2 emissions in the sector while at the same time improve the quality of life, resilience and health of building occupants including economically disadvantaged groups. CEELA builds on long standing Swiss experience in sustainable buildings and will nourish policy dialogue at national, regional and global level.


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

01.03.2019 - 31.12.2022

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.


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.


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

15.12.2018 - 31.12.2023

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.


Climate Change Adaptation in Mountains

15.12.2018 - 30.11.2023

Mountain societies and ecosystems are highly sensitive to climate change and adaptation measures are needed to increase their resilience. The programme will harness Swiss expertise and generate knowledge on climate change impacts and adaptation solutions in mountains on the global level. It will feed expertise into regional science-policy platforms and global policy frameworks to advance adaptation planning, for the benefit of vulnerable mountain communities.


Climate Risks and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) Partnership

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2025

The global Climate Risks and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) Partnership supports Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States in creating necessary human capacities to generate and communicate climate and weather risks timely and effectively. This allows to save millions of lives and significantly reduce economic losses caused by natural disasters and a changing climate. Providing Swiss development, humanitarian and insurance expertise to the CREWS Partnership will contribute to increased impact and sustainability of public and private investments in this field.



BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (BioCF-ISFL)

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2030

The BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (BioCF-ISFL) is a multilateral fund managed by the World Bank catalysing the development of low-carbon rural economies, fostering livelihoods and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from the land sector. It engages national and sub-national governments and the private sector through impact-based payment systems. Switzerland has an interest piloting such incentive systems in order to shape development cooperation that is fit for the future.


Global Alliance on Health and Pollution

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2023

Pollution causes more than 9 million premature deaths a year of which 92% occur in low and middleincome countries. Toxic pollution impedes economic and social development, costing countries around 2% of annual Gross Domestic Product. The Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP), assists these countries to address pollution-related issues by generating scientific evidence for raising awareness and tracking progress and by providing concrete technical and financial support.


National Water Resources Management Tajikistan

01.12.2018 - 30.11.2022

The National Water Resources Management Project-11 in the Tajik part of Syr Darya river basin is about fighting poverty and aims at improving rural livelihoods through an efficient and integrated management of water resources. The latter shall allow farmers to increase lastingly their production, hence their incomes and thanks to efficient and sustainable irrigation and agricultural practices.


African Forests, People and Climate Change

15.11.2018 - 31.12.2022

The African forestry sector holds considerable potential for mitigating and facilitating adaptation to adverse impacts of climate change that severely threaten the development of Sub-Saharan Africa. Support to the African Forest Forum ensures that policies and action base on the improved understanding about the relationship between climate change, forests and trees and that these elements will be reflected in their revised nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the climate convention.
