Our program and project teams have particular experience and skill in the major agricultural and natural resource management, forestry, fisheries and economics disciplines relevant to developing countries. This experience is critical to ACIAR’s role as a facilitator and funder of agricultural research for development.

These disciplines are broadly clustered around the areas of:
  • economics and social sciences;
  • crops;
  • natural resources management; and
  • livestock and fisheries.
We also work in areas that cross and support the disciplines, such as agribusiness and supply-chain management, impact assessment, training and capacity development, communications and regional and multilateral partnership coordination.
