The enhanced Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP+)

This brochure provides an overview of ASAP+, which is expected to be the largest fund dedicated to channelling climate finance to small-scale producers.

It is the enhanced version of the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) launched by IFAD in 2012. ASAP+ builds on IFAD’s expertise in investing in rural communities and its successes and lessons learned.

As a global climate change programme, ASAP+ focuses on addressing the climate change drivers of growing food insecurity by:

  1. Increasing resilience of vulnerable communities to the uncertainty caused by climate change on food security and nutrition
  2. Reducing greenhouse gases through winwin interventions that also yield significant food security benefits, particularly for vulnerable groups.
