L’acqua: una risorsa vitale minacciata

©DSC

La pressione sulle risorse idriche sta aumentando a livello mondiale: il fabbisogno aumenta in modo vertiginoso, ma la disponibilità è limitata. Tutelare questa risorsa vitale e assicurarne una ripartizione equa e favorevole allo sviluppo rappresenta una delle sfide del nostro secolo. In quanto castello idrico d’Europa, la Svizzera dispone di competenze riconosciute nella gestione sostenibile dell’acqua e gode quindi di grande credibilità nella cooperazione internazionale.

La crescita demografica, l’urbanizzazione, i cambiamenti climatici, l’inquinamento, le nuove utilizzazioni del suolo e la crescita economica hanno un impatto diretto sulle risorse idriche. Nel 2025 due terzi degli esseri umani saranno confrontati con la siccità. Ripartire l’acqua nel pieno rispetto dell’uguaglianza sociale, dell’efficienza economica e della sostenibilità ambientale è un punto cruciale dello sviluppo. La DSC è attiva nel settore idrico da oltre 30 anni e il suo operato tocca molteplici aspetti: questioni sociali, ambiente, economia, governance, promozione dell’innovazione e della tecnologia, trasferimento delle conoscenze e dialogo politico nonché l’approccio «acqua e pace» (Blue Peace).

Gestione sostenibile

La DSC promuove un utilizzo efficiente dell’acqua nell’economia e una collaborazione pacifica tra Paesi nei bacini imbriferi transfrontalieri

Priorità internazionale

La DSC si impegna affinché l’obiettivo riguardante le risorse idriche dell’Agenda 2030 per uno sviluppo sostenibile sia attuato rapidamente e venga dato maggior peso al tema della gestione sostenibile dell’acqua nel dibattito internazionale

Diritto all’acqua e ai servizi igienico-sanitari

La DSC realizza progetti concreti e partecipa al dibattito politico per attuare i diritti umani in materia di acqua e servizi igienico-sanitari

Blue Peace: l’acqua come strumento per la pace

La Svizzera reagisce al crescente fabbisogno idrico mondiale tramite la «Swiss Toolbox» per la Blue Peace, le linee d’azione sul tema dell’acqua e della sicurezza

Acqua in crisi

La protezione delle risorse idriche rappresenta oggi una delle maggiori sfide: il fabbisogno aumenta, l’acqua disponibile no. La Svizzera si adopera per migliorare l’accesso all’acqua potabile e agli impianti igienico-sanitari e per favorire un’equa ripartizione delle risorse idriche.
