Romanian police officers learning Romany, the sorting of hazardous household waste in Bulgaria, the implementation of basic health care and home care, support for vocational training: these are just some of the ways Switzerland’s contribution to the enlarged EU is being put into effect in Romania and Bulgaria. The CHF 257 million allocated by Switzerland to these two countries is enabling 28 projects to go ahead. Proposed by Bulgaria and Romania, the projects have been considered carefully by Switzerland and should be completed by the end of 2019.
Another important theme in this newsletter is the Green Climate Fund supports countries in developing and implementing their own climate policies. Interviewed is Anton Hilber, head of the SDC’s Global Programme on Climate Change, on Switzerland’s climate-related activities.
These and other activities and experiences of the different projects that the Swiss Cooperation – SDC drives around the world are presented in the first edition of the SDC Newsletter; we invite you to learn more about these activities in this link.
