Welcome to the SDC Climate, DRR & Environment Network

Climate, Disaster Risk Reduction and Environment are topics that need to be considered in all sectors of development. By acting wisely, we can protect development gains and add value to nature- and climate positive development action. The CDE Network fosters knowledge, assists the policy dialogue in-house, disseminates experiences and innovation from SDC and partners, and informs on our multilateral engagement in Climate and DRR action. The CDE Network connects overall SDC with the CDE Section.
