Agricultural Research

ACIAR is the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. It is part of the Australian Government’s Development Assistance Program, and contributes to the Program’s objectives of helping developing countries reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development.

ACIAR was established in 1982. It funds collaborative agricultural research projects carried out by Australian and overseas research institutes. These projects seek to solve agricultural problems in developing countries.

ACIAR’s mission is to achieve more productive and sustainable agricultural systems, for the benefit of developing countries and Australia, through international agricultural research partnerships.

ACIAR commenced its Vietnam program in 1993. Over the past 26 years it has invested about AUD105 million in 175 projects in Vietnam, contributing actively to Vietnam’s rapid development in agriculture.
