  2. To assess ASAP’s relevance and effectiveness in incentivizing and achieving climate integration in agricultural investment programmes;
  3. To assess ASAP’s efficiency overall, with a particular focus on comparative analysis of disbursement rates of similar climate funds;
  4. To assess ASAP’s implementation to date;
  5. To outline the options for improving the second programme period of ASAP, ensuring sustainability of IFAD’s climate mainstreaming mechanisms beyond 2018; and (vi) To identify lessons learned and recommend follow-up actions for improving ASAP.
