Global Climate Action  

At the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris, it was agreed that mobilizing stronger and more ambitious climate action by all Parties and non-Party stakeholders is urgently required if the goals of the Paris Agreement are to be achieved.

In decision 1/CP.21, the commitments from all actors are recognized, including those launched through the Lima–Paris Action Agenda, as well as the urgent need to scale up the global response to climate change and support greater ambition from governments.

At COP 22 in Marrakech, a High-Level Event on Accelerating Climate Action was held to highlight outcomes from the Action Events throughout the conference and culminated with the launching of the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action; a new framework to catalyse and support climate action.

Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP)

Increase the climate resilience and food security of 8 million poor smallholder household members across the world by 2020

List of participants will be added in due course

Lead Organisations

International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD),

Objectives

As per April 2016, financing for 35 ASAP-supported investment programmes is committed. By late December 2016, the objective is to reach 47 projects in line with IFAD programming cycle and covering 5 continents.
We are foreseeing to present our achievement at LPAA special event during COP22 such as the one which was successfully organized at COP21. We are foreseeing top level representation from IFAD. We can present achievement in terms of financial resources, in terms of concrete examples of successful investments at the field level, in terms of concrete achievements of national institutional processes (e.g. building codes).

With resources mobilized till COP21, ASAP aims at increasing the climate resilience and food security of 8 million smallholders by 2020.
With additional support of US$ 300 million, IFAD would be able to reach an additional 15 million smallholders by 2025. Since 2015, IFAD has already received US$ 92 million additional pledges to increase climate resilience ofsmallholders in the context of IFAD10 replenishment.

Roadmap and work plan

The ASAP programme and the 100% mainstreaming target for IFAD 10 are the tools to achieve delivery to our beneficiary smallholders. Climate mainstreaming activities are now progressively fully blended into the regular IFAD programming cycle.

Progress

As per April 2016, financial support amounting to US$ 285 million has allowed for integrating the following targets into the logical framework of 35 ASAP-supported investment programmes (+ 7 projects since COP21) to build climate resilience of poor smallholders:
• 6 million household members whose climate resilience has been increased (+ 500,000 beneficiaries since COP21)
• 1.7 million hectares of land (+150,000 ha since COP21) and 15 watersheds managed under climate resilient practices
• 99 thousand households and 2.6 thousand production and processing facilities with increased water availability (+ 27 facilities since COP21)
• 600 thousand individuals (+ 20,000 individuals since COP21) and 9 thousand community groups engaged in climate risk management, ENRM or DRR activities
• US$ 54 million worth of new or existing rural infrastructure and 827 kilometres of rural roads made climate resilient (+202 km since COP21)
• 51 dialogues international and country dialogues on climate issues where ASAP supported projects or project partners make an active contribution (+ 2 dialogues since COP21)
Since January 2016, IFAD 10th cycle is on-going and aims to achieve 100% climate resilience of its annual investments by 2018.
