SWISSAID is active in international development cooperation, committed to improving the living conditions and future opportunities of peasants and rural populations in nine countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Investing in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation on the ground is essential in this endeavor. SWISSAID builds on agroecology and gender equality as key entry points, strengthening the communities’ own social, ecological and economic resources to be able to deal with the fundamental changes. Supporting the resilience of rural populations is also at the heart of the SUFOSEC alliance established in 2020, of which SWISSAID is a founding member.
