ACIAR is the Australian Government’s specialist agricultural research-for-development agency in the foreign aid program. ACIAR supports Australian researchers to work with partners in neighbouring countries to reduce poverty and improve livelihoods through productive and sustainable agriculture.

We partner with local Australian organisations to deliver world-class agricultural research in the Indo-Pacific region. Our programs deliver outcomes in agriculture, food security and biosecurity that help build a better future for our regional neighbours.

Many ACIAR research findings can be used to tackle our own agricultural challenges, vital to our nation’s future wellbeing and prosperity. We support Australia’s national interests by contributing to economic growth, opportunities for trade, and enhanced regional stability.
