L’eau – Une ressource vitale menacée

©DDC

La pression sur les ressources en eau s’accentue dans le monde: alors que les besoins augmentent de manière spectaculaire, les volumes d’eau disponibles, eux, ne changent pas. L’un des défis du XXIe siècle sera de préserver cette ressource vitale et de veiller à sa répartition équitable et favorable au développement. En tant que château d’eau de l’Europe, la Suisse dispose de compétences reconnues en matière de gestion respectueuse de l’eau, ce qui lui confère une grande crédibilité dans le contexte de la coopération internationale.

La croissance démographique, l’urbanisation, le changement climatique, la pollution, les changements dans l’utilisation des terres et la croissance économique ont une incidence directe sur les ressources hydriques. En 2025, deux tiers de l’humanité vivront dans des zones sujettes à des pénuries d’eau. Pour le développement, il est essentiel que l’égalité sociale, l’efficience économique et la viabilité environnementale soient garanties lors de la répartition de l’eau entre les utilisateurs. La DDC est active dans le domaine de l’eau depuis plus de 30 ans. Ses interventions couvrent différents aspects: questions sociales, environnement, économie, gouvernance, promotion des technologies et de l’innovation, transfert de connaissances et dialogue politique ainsi que thématique «eau et paix» (Blue Peace).

Gestion durable

La DDC favorise l’utilisation efficiente de l’eau dans les activités économiques et la coopération pacifique dans les bassins hydriques internationaux

Priorité internationale

La DDC se mobilise pour que l’objectif de l’Agenda 2030 pour le développement durable concernant l’eau soit réalisé rapidement et que la communauté internationale accorde davantage d’attention à la gestion durable de l’eau

L’accès à l’eau et à l’assainissement

En réalisant des projets concrets et en menant un dialogue politique, la DDC œuvre pour que les droits humains en matière d’eau et d’assainissement soit garantis

Blue Peace: l’eau, un instrument de paix

Pour relever les défis que posent les besoins grandissants en eau dans le monde, la Suisse a défini des lignes d’action en matière d’eau et de sécurité (Swiss Toolbox for Blue Peace)

L’eau en crise

La protection de l’eau est l’un des plus grands défis: la demande augmente, mais la disponibilité stagne. La Suisse s’engage en faveur de l’accès à l’eau potable, d’installations sanitaires adaptées et d’une répartition équitable.
