Alain Berset and Patricia Danzi meet representatives of our PROECCO project


Alain Berset, the president of the Swiss Confederation, and Patricia Danzi, Director General at SDC, met with representatives of our implementation project PROECCO in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The PROECCO project aims at promoting employment through climate responsive construction and at improving the livelihood in urban residential areas.

The project was also popular among policy makers at the World Urban Forum in Katowice last summer. Proecco was furthermore invited to present their efforts at the COP27 – UN Climate Change Conference in Sharm el-Sheikh and in various panel discussions with decision makers and green building pioneers.

Our experts Daniel Wyss (project manager) and Silas Markert contribute their experience while Enrico Morriello is the local team leader of Proecco and Franck Cyr Ahononga (in the middle on the picture) is responsible for the team in DRC that welcomed Berset.

The project is financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
