Strategy Review 2022

The Commission for International Agricultural Research has initiated a mid-term review of the ‘ACIAR 10-Year Strategy 2018 – 2027’.

With the strategy at its halfway point in 2022, it is timely to undertake a review of progress to reassess whether the strategy remains fit for purpose, especially given the significant change to the ACIAR operating environment due to COVID-19.

The review will be independently chaired by Dr Wendy Craik and supported by six external panel members. Members of the review panel are:

  • Prof Lindsay Falvey
  • Dr Beth Woods
  • Dr Brian Keating
  • Dr Colin Tukuitonga
  • Dr Samantha Grover
  • Dr Carina Wyborn

The panel will consider written submissions from ACIAR partners and stakeholders. Submissions will be guided by the terms of reference and should follow the guidelines for writing a submission. Documents are included below. 

The review panel will conduct face-to-face consultations with selected stakeholders, including some of those who have provided written submissions, from 7-11 March 2022. The panel will then provide a written report to the  Commission for International Agricultural Research, who will consider it at their June meeting, and formally respond after their August meeting. The report and submissions will be published on the ACIAR webpage after then.

Submissions must be emailed no later than 7 February 2022  to:  [email protected]

Enquiries and submissions to: [email protected]

Submissions close 11:59pm, 7 February 2022
