The Global Programme Climate Change and Environment of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) hosts the Climate Change & Environment (CC&E) Network, and brings together development practitioners, organizations and SDC staff working in and around climate change and environmental issues.

The CC&E Network has about 300 members.


The CC&E Network plays a crucial role in integrating climate change and the environment into Swiss development cooperation. Through the Network SDC provides access to information regarding projects, science, technologies, and international processes. It helps facilitating a lively communication and creates a basis for continuous knowledge-sharing.

Events and

Network members regularly get together through events like regional and multi-regional meetings jointly organized with other thematic networks.

With the help of learning journeys, the members of different networks create new and more relevant thematic understanding. The Network develops a variety of thematic products such as the Nexus Briefs on linkages between CC&E and other development priorities.

The network lives and thrives through sharing experiences and information in workshops, online discussions, trainings and web applications. Members create awareness of emerging issues, find technical solutions and support each other in improving the quality of their work.

One example is the CC&E space on the weADAPT platform where members share lessons learnt, best practices and case studies to improve their know- and do-how continuously.

Advisory services

The CC&E Network provides assistance to SDC staff and partners in integrating climate change and environmental aspects into development cooperation. SDC has created the Climate, Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction Integration Guidance (CEDRIG), a step-by-step tool for proofing development strategies, programs and projects. Many resources, trainings, workshops and other means of assistance are available for easy and user-friendly application of CEDRIG.

Be climate, environmental and natural hazard smart and join the CEDRIG community at www.cedrig.org


SDC and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) have partnered to create UN CC:Learn, a platform for free and public online training courses on climate change. The introductory training consists of six modules, and participants who pass the full test receive a signed certificate. So far, more than 180,000 users have been registered covering all United Nations countries, and more than 30,000 certificates have been issued.
