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.
