The world stands at a critical stage, where the response to climate change is not just important; it is urgent. Our planet is warming at an alarming rate, resulting in rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and disruptions to ecosystems. To secure a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations, we must act now. We must act globally, and locally.

Helvetas Response

Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation, alongside other organizations, recognizes the paramount importance of integrating climate resilience into development projects. Our initiatives aim not only to alleviate poverty and foster sustainable development but also to mitigate the impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable populations. We are actively working to build capacity, promote sustainable practices, and create policy frameworks that address both development and climate challenges. By aligning our efforts with the global climate agenda, we are demonstrating our unwavering commitment to a sustainable future for all.

Development Actors

Amid the urgency of climate change, development actors stand united in the fight against climate change. They have already designed approaches and instruments to respond effectively, recognizing the pressing need for immediate action.

Looking forward

The message is clear: we should, and we can play our role in combating climate change. Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation is determined to be at the forefront of this crucial effort. By mobilizing resources, expertise, and partnerships, we can make a difference. The time to act is now, and the path forward is clear – we should, and we can, play our role!
