International cooperation

Internationally, Switzerland cooperates on natural hazards with neighbouring countries with which it shares lakes (e.g. Lago Maggiore (Commissione Internazionale per la Protezione delle Acque Italo-Svizzere CIPAIS), Lake Geneva (International Commission for the Protection of the Waters of Lake Geneva CIPEL)) or where rivers cross both countries (e.g. International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine ICPR). In the Alpine region, there is cooperation with the Working Group on Natural Hazards (PLANALP - Alpconv) and with the EU within the framework of the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP). There is also international cooperation in Sendai monitoring (The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction UNDRR) and in the monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
