ACIAR is committed to ensuring that its online information and experiences are accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of ability, technology or platforms.

Web standards

Our websites aim to conform to Level AA where possible, of the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0).

We also aim to meet the Digital Transformation Agency's requirements for Australian Government websites.


Some material on this site is available in PDF format. We use PDFs because they are portable, printable and can be reasonably accessible. ACIAR outsources the design and creation of our publications but requests that our publishers comply with accessibility standards. We are currently investigating providing accessible word format as an alternative for our publications.

If you require an accessible version of any document on our website please contact us
