La prévention des catastrophes, l’aide d’urgence et la reconstruction sont les trois champs d’intervention couverts par l’Aide humanitaire de la DDC. Ils correspondent à un engagement avant, pendant et après les crises, les conflits armés et les catastrophes.

La prévention englobe toutes les mesures de protection de la population et des infrastructures. La prévention des dangers et la réduction de la vulnérabilité font partie du développement durable et sont soutenues dans tous les projets et programmes de la DDC. L’aide d’urgence a pour mission de sauver des vies et d’alléger les souffrances lors de crises. Deux tiers des fonds gérés par l’Aide humanitaire de la DDC sont consacrés à l’aide d’urgence. Après l’urgence et lorsque la situation s’est stabilisée, les travaux de reconstruction et de réhabilitation peuvent débuter. Dans des situations de conflits prolongés, ces instruments peuvent être engagés simultanément. 

La protection des populations constitue l’une des quatre priorités thématiques de l’Aide humanitaire de la DDC, au même titre que la réduction des risques de catastrophes, l’eau/assainissement/hygiène ainsi que les violences sexuelles et basées sur le genre.

Prévention des catastrophes

Les catastrophes naturelles frappent aussi bien les pays riches que les pays pauvres, mais leurs répercussions diffèrent en fonction du niveau de développement.

Aide immédiate et aide d’urgence

A travers ses experts du Corps suisse d’aide humanitaire (CSA), la Confédération apporte une aide d’urgence, partout dans le monde, en cas de crises, de conflits et de catastrophes.

Reconstruction et réhabilitation

La reconstruction a pour objet de rétablir les conditions de vie de la population sinistrée.

Protection

Les conflits armés et les catastrophes naturelles exposent les survivants à des risques de violence physique ou psychique.

Handicap International: Comprehensive action against Antipersonnel Mines (APM) and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) in three departments of Colombia.

01.08.2015 - 31.05.2017

The five decades running armed conflict in Colombia continues to cause humanitarian needs such as internal displacement, landmine contamination and the recruitment of minors by armed groups. Departments of Nariño, Cauca and Cordoba, by geography serve as strategic corridor to the Pacific and Caribe for the cultivation, production and trafficking of drugs, weapons and illegal mining among others, becoming scenario of social conflicts and armed confrontation. Rural communities in those departments are among the most affected by antipersonnel mines (APM) and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) which generate victims with poor access to physical and psychosocial services, as well as option for social, economic and educational inclusion.
