Refugiados y desplazados internos: ayuda humanitaria y protección de las poblaciones

La COSUDE concede su ayuda a los refugiados y desplazados internos. Envía expertos sobre el terreno y da una ayuda financiara a las ONGs y a las agencias humanitarias internacionales. Trabaja asimismo en colaboración con las autoridades locales.

En el punto de mira de la COSUDE

La ayuda humanitaria de COSUDE consagra una parte importante de su compromiso a la supervisión y al apoyo a los refugiados y desplazados internos.

Tres cuartos de los refugiados se concentran en países en vías de desarrollo que no disponen de los medios suficientes para acoger a estas personas en un número elevado y ofrecerles una protección eficaz.  Los que llegan por mar -los llamados «refugiados de las pateras»- no pueden seguir su camino y volver a sus casas. La irregularidad de su situación los expone a amenazas físicas, a ser robados, violados o víctima de la trata de seres humanos.

A diferencia de los refugiados, los desplazados internos no han cruzado la frontera de ningún Estado: se han visto obligados por la fuerza a huir en el interior de su país. Se encuentran bajo la responsabilidad del gobierno afectado y de las autoridades locales que, con frecuencia, no son capaces o no tienen la voluntad de asumir sus responsabilidades al respecto. Así pues, la comunidad internacional asegura su protección ofreciendo una ayuda direecta y desarrollando un marco jurídico adecuado.

Contexto

Las respuestas inmediatas de la COSUDE a la migraciones sucesivas a una crisis se inscriben en el marco de la ayuda de urgencia y de la reconstrucción. Pero el complejo fenómeno mundial de las migraciones requiere muchas más.

Despliegue de expertos

De esta forma, la ayuda humanitaria puede asumir varias formas como, por ejemplo, el despliegue de expertos encargados de la protección de las víctimas de conflictos armados, el apoyo a las autoridades locales, o la distribución de dinero en contante a las familias que acogen a los refugiados, de forma que estas puedan vivir en mejores condiciones.

La DSC mette a disposizione dell'ACNUR esperti del Corpo svizzero di aiuto umanitario (CSA). Nel 2016, 24 esperti del CSA hanno svolto missioni per conto dell'ACNUR in 14 Paesi tra Africa, Asia, America Latina e Medio Oriente. L'ACNUR ha beneficiato delle competenze del CSA in vari settori quali le risorse idriche e il risanamento, la legislazione e la costruzione di ripari.

Así pues, el compromiso de la COSUDE se basa en el concepto interdepartamental de «Protección en la región». El mismo tiene como objetivo suministrar lo antes posible a los refugiados una protección eficaz en su región de origen y ayudar a los principales países de acogida a garantizar a estas personas la protección necesaria. En este sentido, se inscribe la acción de la COSUDE en el Cuerno de África y en Oriente Medio, dos contextos en los que el número de desplazados asciente a millones.

La reconstrucción más allá de la emergencia

Un fenómeno creciente

La inestabilidad de numerosas regiones del mundo obliga a cientos de miles de personas a huir de sus países de origen. Según la ONU, nel 2016, más de  61.4 millones de personas se han visto obligadas a desplazarse debido a un conflicto o a persecuciones.

Compromiso con Siria

Desde 2011 Suiza suministra ayuda humanitaria y protege a las poblaciones afectadas por la crisis siria. La COSUDE les presta su ayuda mediante acciones directas, realizadas por expertos del Cuerpo suizo de Ayuda Humanitaria (CSA) y ofrece una contribución financiera sustancial a la respuesta multilateral del Comité Internacional de la Cruz Roja y las agencias de la ONU, además de apoyar a las ONGs activas en la zona.
