Frequently Asked Questions

About the ASAP Initiative questions

  • The ASAP Initiative is generously supported by the Global Environment Facility, the InterAmerican Development Bank, and Conservation International.

  • Climate change will affect all sectors of the economy and adaptation solutions will come from a number of sectors, including but not limited to agriculture, water, geospatial imaging and mapping, supply chain and logistics.

For Companies questions

  • No. Companies do not have to pay anything to participate in ASAP. That said, there may be expenses (e.g., travel, accommodations) associated with attending any physical convenings organized by ASAP, which would need to be borne by participant companies themselves. In addition, while ASAP will partner with incubator and accelerator programs on building customized adaptation- and resilience-focused curriculum and help to facilitate ASAP Adaptation SMEs’ applications into such programs, many accelerators and incubators charge fees for participation. These accelerator and incubator fees will not be covered by the ASAP program.

  • Given the barriers that SMEs face in their ability to scale and attract investment, the ASAP Initiative is focused exclusively on the SME sector. SMEs are businesses that meet 2 of the 3 criteria: (a) less than 300 employees; (b)< $15 million in Assets; (c) < $15 million in Annual Sales

  • Companies from a variety of sectors can provide climate adaptation solutions. Please see for more detail.

For Investors questions

  • While the ASAP Initiative does not formally match investors and company, the ASAP Directory is public platform where interested donors and investors can easily access SMEs engaged in climate adaptation activities.
