We are a leading organisation in the implementation of international development projects. We promote inclusive economic, social and ecological development to make an effective contribution towards sustainable and widespread prosperity in developing and emerging economies.
To make our processes more efficient and for our own continuous improvement, Swisscontact applies systematic impact measurement. Our uniform results monitoring and measurement in various projects are integral elements of Swisscontact project management and quality assurance.
In the year of crisis that was 2020, Swisscontact was able to build on its many years of experience building stable structures, networks, and partnerships at the local level. This helps people, businesses, and the economy as a whole to find their way out of crises more quickly.
Swisscontact creates opportunities in the following countries
OUR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME: DEVELOPMENT THROUGH INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
Our development programme is the centrepiece of Swisscontact.It encompasses about 30 projects in over 20 countries. In the development programme we test new ideas and further develop existing innovations that have been proven effective over time. We link Swiss and international actors from the public and private sector as well as academia. In this way the programme supports cross-sectoral approaches and cooperation.
We understand sustainable and inclusive economic development as a long-term process. It requires technological, institutional, and social innovation. Such development enhances resilience in communities, economies, regions, and countries. Swisscontact sees itself as a catalyst for and facilitator of these processes.
