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.

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

01.08.2024 - 31.07.2028

The Promoting Efficient, Affordable and Clean Cooling for Everyone (PEACCE) project contributes to mobilising global support and political will for scaling up sustainable cooling solutions in sub-Saharan Africa by supporting the Sustainable Cooling programme of the Sustainable Energy for All organisation. With its support, Switzerland aims to leverage its experience in passive cooling and nature-based cooling solutions both within sub-Saharan Africa and globally.


Responsible Business Fund Plus (RBF+)

01.07.2024 - 30.06.2028

Myanmar’s post-coup conflict escalation and economic turmoil has led to financial and economic instability and destabilised the agrifood industry. Also, extreme weather and climate change further impact farmers and agricultural processors. The Responsible Business Fund Plus project aims to support agrifood businesses while reducing their environmental impact and thus deepening Switzerland's commitment to private sector engagement and an inclusive green economy.


Climate Services for a Resilient Albania (ALBAdapt)

01.06.2024 - 31.12.2030

The project will increase Albania’s adaptive capacity and climate resilience through the effective generation and use of climate information and services. It will develop an innovative Multi Hazard Impact Based Early Warning System in line with international standards. The MeteoSwiss expertise will be of added value in leveraging the Green Climate Fund engagement and complementing the SECO contribution to this large strategic project.


Building Damage Assessment in Albania

01.04.2024 - 31.12.2027

The devastating earthquake in 2019 revealed that Albania has a weak policy and institutional framework and low public awareness on building damage assessment. The Swiss project will support Albania in strengthening its disaster risk management institutions at national and municipal level to provide sustainable and effective building damage assessment services, leading to safer living conditions and a more disaster resilient business environment.


8th Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, Geneva, June 2025

01.03.2024 - 31.12.2025

The Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction is the most important international conference to discuss progress in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for DRR. The eighth session of the Global Platform will be hosted by Switzerland in Geneva in June 2025. It will review advances in the realisation of the calls to action made in 2023 by the United Nations General Assembly on the midterm review of the Sendai Framework and will be key for the identification and support of measures to accelerate DRR implementation and improve coherence with the Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement.


Addressing Climate and El Niño-related Risks in Southeast Asia

01.02.2024 - 31.07.2025

Through an innovative partnership with the Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre (ADPC) and Geoneon, the SDC will support the creation of high-quality geospatial data products to support riskinformed and climate-smart decision-making in development cooperation and DRM in priority subnational areas in Lao PDR and Indonesia, contributing to and complementing efforts under the SERVIR Southeast Asia project implemented by ADPC and supported by USAID and NASA.


Climate & Socially Resilient Livelihoods’ Support (CSRLS)

01.02.2024 - 30.04.2028

The climatic challenges exacerbate Afghanistan's already fragile socio-economic condition. The project by the Afghan NGO, The Liaison Office, aims to sustainably improve lives and livelihoods of the poorest households in selected provinces by strengthening the natural resource base, climate change resilient and diversified livelihoods, relationships within and between communities, as well as joint climate action.

01.01.2024 - 31.12.2027

Designed as an operating entity of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)’s financial mechanism, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) is the largest multilateral climate fund financing exclusively climate mitigation and adaptation projects in developing countries. Switzerland advocates in the GCF governing board for high impact climate projects with maximum development cobenefits, social inclusion and conflict-sensitivity.  


EmPower II: Women for Climate Resilient Societies

01.12.2023 - 31.12.2025

With EmPower II, SDC contributes to a SIDA-funded project of UN-Women and UNEP promoting  climate-resilient development for women and other marginalized groups. SDC’s support enables disaggregated data products for gender-responsive DRR and climate strategies and enhances capacities on the subnational level among policy-makers and CSOs.
