Promoting Market Oriented Skills Training in the Great Lakes region (PROMOST)

01.07.2019 - 30.06.2022

PROMOST contributed to increased employment and income generation in the Great Lakes region by providing access and enhancing quality of vocational training. Building on the achievements of the previous two phases, the third phase will focus on the sustainability of the interventions, on the labor market insertion of graduates and on the institutionalization of short-term training and apprentice-ships, thus permitting the phasing-out of Swiss contributions and the continuous increasing of national and regional commitments to professional skills education, especially in Rwanda.


Contributions to OCHA Field Operations in 2019

01.01.2019 - 31.12.2019

OCHA’s mission is to coordinate the global emergency response, to save lives and protect people in humanitarian crises. OCHA advocates for effective and principled humanitarian action by all, for all, in partnership with national and international actors in order to alleviate human suffering in sudden-onset disasters and protracted crises. It is responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent and timely response to emergencies. Therefore, SDC seeks to provide support to OCHA field and regional offices in relevant humanitarian contexts, in line with SDC geographic and thematic priorities.

Appui à la paix et à la stabilité en RDC par l’observation de proximité des scrutins du 23 décembre 2018

01.10.2018 - 31.03.2019

La RDC se prépare à des élections le 23 décembre 2018. Le gouvernement indique vouloir les financer seul. Le processus électoral, bien avancé, reste fortement contrôlé et peu transparent, créant la méfiance de la population. La société civile revendique des élections crédibles ; l’appui de la Suisse et d’autres bailleurs lui permet de s’organiser pour mener une observation citoyenne. La présence des observateurs contribue à rendre le processus électoral transparent.

Ce soutien comprend aussi une meilleure préparation et réponse aux épidémies et vient en appui à la politique sanitaire de la République Démocratique du Congo au niveau décentralisé.
