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