Southward bound

The Swiss Coalition of Development Organisations has launched a North-South Campaign to inform Swiss citizens about North-South issues and partnerships. The campaign aims at urging voters and the Swiss government to put the interests of developing countries at the centre of Swiss development policies.

The coalition is developing a North-South manifesto that may mark a turning point in Swiss development policy in the next century. A series of talks between Swiss decision-makers, citizens' associations and business leaders is also being organised. The coalition also plans study trips to developing countries to encourage in-depth contacts between these nations and Swiss policy-makers.
