La prevención de catástrofes, la ayuda de emergencia y la reconstrucción son los tres campos de intervención de la Ayuda Humanitaria de la COSUDE. Corresponden, respectivamente, a un compromiso antes, durante y después de las crisis, los conflictos armados y las catástrofes.

La prevención designa el conjunto de las medidas previas adoptadas para proteger a la población y la infraestructura. Todos los proyectos y programas de la COSUDE fomentan la prevención de riesgos y la reducción de la vulnerabilidad, como parte del desarrollo sostenible. La ayuda de emergencia tiene por cometido principal salvar vidas y aliviar el sufrimiento en el momento álgido de una crisis. Dos tercios de los fondos gestionados por la Ayuda Humanitaria de la COSUDE se destinan a la ayuda de emergencia. Tras la emergencia y una vez que la situación se ha estabilizado, pueden comenzar los trabajos de reconstrucción y de rehabilitación. En situaciones de conflictos prolongados, el compromiso en estos tres campos de intervención puede ser simultáneo. 

La protección de la población es una de las cuatro prioridades temáticas de la Ayuda Humanitaria de la COSUDE, además de la reducción del riesgo de catástrofes, del agua, de las instalaciones sanitarias y de la violencia sexual y por motivos de género.

Reducción del riesgo de desastres

Los desastres naturales afectan tanto a los países ricos como a los pobres, pero las repercusiones varían en función del nivel de desarrollo.

Reconstrucción y rehabilitación

El propósito general de la reconstrucción y rehabilitación es el restablecimiento de las condiciones de vida de la población afectada.

Ayuda inmediata y ayuda de emergencia

La ayuda de emergencia de la Confederación, con sus expertos del Cuerpo Suizo de Ayuda humanitaria (CSA), interviene en crisis, conflictos y catástrofes a nivel mundial.

Protección

Los conflictos armados y los desastres naturales exponen a los supervivientes a riesgos de violencia física y psíquica.

Emergency response to address malnutrition through improved nutrition, mental health and care practices in Maungdaw District, Rakhine State

01.05.2017 - 31.05.2018

The violence that took place on October 9 2016, and the ensuing insecurity across Northern Rakhine State (NRS), resulted in the suspension of humanitarian services in the area. Many of the affected people missed out on their seasonal food assistance, school feeding and regular nutrition support for at least three months, resulting in a significant negative impact on the food security, health and nutritional status, and mental health of vulnerable families. With this emergency response, Action Contre la Faim (ACF) will address increased malnutrition through an integrated program, which aims to reduce child and Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLW) undernutrition, mortality and morbidity.



ApS: Territory as a space for peace: governance, education for peace and access to basic services and livelihoods as key elements for development and post-conflict in the Pacific Region

SDC will support ApS in improving living conditions of rural and ethnic communities in the Pacific Region affected by the armed conflict and natural events with a rights-based approach. The focus of this phase will be on an exit strategy that links humanitarian aid, rehabilitation and development in four departments that were under the influence of the FARC. It will contribute to peacebuilding efforts in Colombia while addressing humanitarian needs in zones where armed violence has increased and state responses have been weak.

FAO: Improved production, availability and access to nutritious food for vulnerable people in north-eastern Nigeria

01.03.2017 - 30.04.2018

Improve the production, availability and access to nutritious food for vulnerable IDPs, returnees and host communities in north-eastern Nigeria by the provision of agricultural production inputs such as seeds, tools and fertilizer. The provision of agricultural production will complement the emergency food assistance provided by the WFP and enable farmers to produce enough food, as well as to meet the most vulnerable households’ immediate food needs.


Grand Bargain Project 2017-2018

15.02.2017 - 30.06.2020

The Grand Bargain is one of the concrete initiatives announced at the WHS to improve humanitarian action, as it provides avenues for how aid financing must be more efficient. The top 30 donors and aid agencies endorsed this so-called “Grand Bargain” to make aid more efficient, including long-term, flexible and less earmarked funding from the donors, reduced overhead costs and reporting requirements, a greater use of digital funding (cash transfers) and more means flowing to local and national responders. It also commits to more coherent and “impartial” needs assessments and less competition between aid agencies. In a nutshell, the Grand Bargain tries to address some of the structural reforms that are needed in the humanitarian system through the lenses of financing.


SSD IOM: Regional Information and Coordination Mechanisms for South Sudanese Displacement Dynamics

01.02.2017 - 30.08.2018

Continued conflict, food insecurity and a dire economic situation have increased the scale of displacement both within and outside the country to unprecedented levels, with many sheltering in UN POCS or crossing to neighbouring countries. For humanitarians to be able to respond to the needs of these populations, a better understanding of the displacement dynamics and trends must be developed. IOM’s proposed project will help create a better understanding of the displacement dynamics and trends and enable humanitarians to effectively respond to needs of the populations.


Contribution to UNRWA's Programme Budget 2017-2020

01.01.2017 - 31.12.2020

UNRWA is one of Switzerland’s key multilateral partners in the Middle East, due to its regional outreach and its important contributions towards stability and peace in the region. UNRWA overall delivers assistance and protection services to 5.3 million registered Palestine refugees. Under its Programme Budget, UNRWA ensures universal access to quality primary health care and to basic education to Palestine refugees. It also provides targeted relief and social services to needy poor refugees.


Contribution 2017 to WFP Refugee Operations in Kenya

01.01.2017 - 31.12.2017

Rational and relevance of the intervention and summary of overall goal:

In line with the Good Humanitarian Donorship (GHD) principles, Switzerland recognizes the necessity of predictable and flexible funding to respond to changing needs in humanitarian crises. SDC funding to WFP operations allows the World Food Programme (WFP) to respond proactively and to provide immediate food assistance in life-threatening situations.

Amidst funding shortfalls and consequent cuts of food ratios for refugees in Kenya, Switzerland contributes to the food assistance for refugees living in Dadaab and Kakuma camps.
