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 meet level AA where possible, of the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0).

We also aim to meet the web accessibility requirements for the Australian Government.


Some material on this site is available in PDF because this file format is portable, printable and can be reasonably accessible. ACIAR outsources the design and creation of our publications and requests that our publishers meet the accessibility standards. We are currently investigating providing an accessible MS Word format as an alternative for our publications.

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