Agricultura y seguridad alimentaria

El hambre y la malnutrición no solo ponen en peligro la salud individual, sino también y de forma decisiva el desarrollo de los países. Por eso, la COSUDE se preocupa de que todos puedan disfrutar de una alimentación adecuada, suficiente y de buena calidad. En este sentido, otorga importancia a la cadena entera de valor añadido de los alimentos: desde los campos, donde se producen los alimentos, pasando por el almacenamiento y el tratamiento, los mercados, la venta y el transporte hasta el consumo.

La COSUDE se compromete a promover a escala mundial el derecho de los seres humanos a una alimentación adecuada. De este modo, concibe sus actividades con el objetivo de proporcionar a los grupos de población más pobres y discriminados, como los pequeños productores, las mujeres y los jóvenes, un acceso equitativo al conocimiento, los recursos productivos y los mercados. En este marco, la COSUDE les apoya en el uso productivo y a la vez cuidadoso de los recursos naturales, en la gestión de las repercusiones del cambio climático, en el almacenamiento y la comercialización de sus productos, así como en la adaptación permanente a unas condiciones medioambientales en constante cambio. En todo ello, presta especial atención a la preservación de la biodiversidad, que se encuentra en grave peligro. Asimismo, aboga por lograr unos sistemas de investigación y de asesoramiento adaptados a las necesidades.

La COSUDE fomenta también las innovaciones a lo largo de la cadena de valor añadido de los alimentos, que posibilitan a los consumidores una alimentación sana y variada o el acceso tanto en el campo como en las ciudades a dichos alimentos.

La agricultura sostenible que preserve la biodiversidad es la base para garantizar el derecho humano a una alimentación sana y adecuada. Con este objetivo primordial, Suiza se involucra en el ámbito de la seguridad alimentaria en la cooperación internacional. La agricultura suiza es todo un ejemplo gracias a su producción de alimentos multifuncional, asentada en el equilibrio social y regional, de base familiar y respetuosa con el medio ambiente

Enabling development through landmine clearance in the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor

01.11.2021 - 31.10.2023

Switzerland will contribute to achieve Zimbabwe’s 2025 landmine-free deadline by supporting a demining operation in the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor. The project implemented by APOPO seeks to return 84% of the remaining suspected contaminated area to local communities which will be used for agricultural development, ecotourism, and conservation, as well as to provide mine risk education so that food security is enhanced, general wellbeing is improved, and accidents are avoided.


Strengthening livestock sector in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) Counties of Kenya

01.10.2021 - 30.04.2024

Around 60% of the population in the arid and semi-arid lands of Northern Eastern Kenya Counties live in abject poverty and are almost entirely dependent on livestock production for their livelihoods in an environment that is characterized by droughts and resource based conflicts. This programme will support these Counties to enhance livestock production by strengthening key factors such as fodder production, animal health, etc. and by strengthening the institutions to more effectively deliver relevant services and reduce conflicts. 


PREPAS - Programme de Renforcement de l’élevage pastoral au Tchad

01.10.2021 - 31.12.2026

Le Batha, le Wadi Fira et l’Ennedi sont des provinces sahéliennes soumises à l’avancée du désert et à l’irrégularité pluviométrique. L’élevage pastoral y est la principale activité économique. La Suisse appuie un programme de renforcement de l’élevage pastoral qui contribue à une gestion durable des ressources, à la prévention des conflits, et à l’amélioration de l’offre de services aux éleveurs. Ce programme impulse des opportunités économiques aux jeunes limitant la migration vers la Libye ou les zones aurifères marquées par l’insécurité et le banditisme.


PAAS - Project to Support Sustainable Agriculture in Cuba

15.07.2021 - 15.07.2023

The phase 3 of PAAS proposes the consolidation of a methodology for the application and scaling up of the value chain management model. It includes elements of circular economy, climate-smart agriculture and agro-ecological certification in 11 municipalities and 5 chains (cassava, broiler chicken meat, small livestock, fruit trees and vegetables). The project expects to have an impact on agricultural public policies by incorporating the model into the guidelines of the prioritized national agricultural programs.


Partnership for Forestry and Fisheries (PaFF): Support to Forestry and Fisheries Communities in Cambodia

01.07.2021 - 30.06.2023

The final phase of the Partnership for Forestry and Fisheries is implemented by four NonGovernmental Organisations led by the Center for Forests and People - RECOFTC. It will support rural communities in managing their natural resources in four provinces. With SDC`s contribution and inclusive development, the communities’ economic, social and cultural rights will be enhanced through funding opportunities that improve their livelihoods and increase resilience to natural shocks.  


Rural Resilience in Southern Africa / R4 Initiative

01.07.2021 - 30.06.2025

The R4 Rural Resilience Initiative for Southern Africa enables smallholder farmers’ adaptation to climate risk through improved resource management, insurance, livelihoods diversification, microcredit and savings. Through R4, Switzerland has become a credible and trusted partner in resilience building and its learnings have fed into policy dialogue. The emphasis of this final phase is on strengthening government and private sector, as well as the gender approach.  


International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) - core contribution

01.06.2021 - 31.12.2024

ICIPE is Africa’s leading insect research institute contributing to plant, animal, human and environmental health. SDC supports ICIPE as its work is highly relevant for the transformation to sustainable food systems, agroecology, healthy nutrition, and the promotion of the ‘One health’ approach. ICIPE’s development path is closely linked to Switzerland through longstanding partnerships with prominent Swiss experts and organisations. 


CORIGAP: Closing Rice Yield Gaps in Asia

01.04.2021 - 31.12.2022

SDC supports the International Rice Research Institute and national research and extension partners in six countries in Asia (China, Indonesia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam) to develop quantitative tools and methods to optimize the sustainability of irrigated systems in order to enhance regional food security while minimizing the environmental footprint of rice production. Through this contribution, Switzerland has initiated the development of sustainable rice production indicators which are now adopted by more than 100 private and public organisations.


ESLR - Enhancing Systematic Land Registration

15.03.2021 - 30.09.2026

The absence of land use regulations enforcement and poor-quality land administration services have limited land tenure security of the Lao population, and have contributed to social tensions and poverty. Switzerland, with its long standing engagement in the land governance sector, will support the Lao People’s Democratic Republic’s effort to accelerate systematic land registration, hence strengthening land tenure security of the Lao population, including the vulnerable groups, women and ethnic minorities.

Pastoralism is a millennia old livelihood strategy adapted to the marginal and harsh environ-ments of Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL). In order to support pastoralists, this programme contributes to strengthening public and private institutions in the water and livestock sectors, putting policy frameworks in place to ensure efficient county-wide and cross-border water and rangeland management systems, and to increase access to water and pasture.


AgriPath: Empowering farmers’ transition to sustainable agriculture through effective and efficient digital pathways

01.03.2021 - 28.02.2026

500 million smallholder farmers need to increase their agriculture productivity, income and climate resilience.
