In 2021, as the world continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic, a more silent threat endangers the lives of millions of people: climate change. Our food systems — the way we produce, distribute and consume food — sit precariously at the crossroads between climate, biodiversity and environment, and a multitude of compounding social inequities.

Small-scale farmers are responsible for up to 80 per cent of food production in Latin American and Caribbean countries, but they are at the frontline of the fight against climate change and social injustice. Despite their disproportionate vulnerability to climate change, they receive only 1.7 per cent of global climate finance.

IFAD is committed to play its part in changing that through funding special programs like ASAP and ASAP+ to help some of the world's poorest rural people tackle and adapt their agriculture to the changing climate.
