Our support to Timor-Leste focuses on a program of research collaboration with a long-term view in capacity and partnership development. The program and project areas of focus are primarily in crops, soil and land management, fisheries, forestry, livestock systems and global programs.

The ACIAR country strategy is looking at ways to support and improve the country's ability to generate reliable income from agriculture and thereby improve the living conditions and livelihood opportunities of families.

Country priorities 

  • Increasing aquaculture (inland and coastal).
  • Managing agroforestry.
  • Monitoring livestock (especially cattle and poultry) and cropping systems.
  • Continuing trilateral research collaboration with Indonesia.
