Switzerland is part of the globalised world. Our policies and our consumption have an impact far beyond our country’s borders. Caritas Switzerland is committed to a courageous and far-sighted development policy. The top priority is to fight against hunger and poverty worldwide and to guarantee a life in safety and dignity to all people.
We are actively engaged in the following themes
- Fighting against poverty, hunger and inequalities worldwide
- Strengthening the Federal Government’s development cooperation
- Implementing the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals
- A coherent foreign policy in which Swiss tax, trade and economic policy does not undermine the humanitarian and development-policy goals
