Over 160 subsidies are damaging biodiversity in Switzerland

Over 160 subsidies in different areas not only support a variety of political goals but at the same time damage biodiversity, as researchers from the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL and the Biodiversity Forum of the Swiss Academy of Sciences demonstrate in a study published on Monday. This is despite the fact that Switzerland has committed itself under the Convention on Biological Diversity to adapting or abolishing biodiversity-damaging subsidies by 2020.

Turning water from a cause of conflict into a driving force for peace and security

Permanent access to fresh drinking water or sufficient water supply for farming and industry: what is taken for granted in Switzerland can trigger conflict in other parts of the world. 263 catchment basins of rivers or lakes extend over two or more countries worldwide. Around 300 groundwater reserves spanning borders also represent the basis of existence for two billion people globally. The use of water across borders presents potential for conflict. Switzerland aims to defuse potential conflicts with a preventative approach through water diplomacy (Blue Peace).
