The Australian Centre for International Research (ACIAR) 2016–17 Annual Operational Plan (AOP) is the third developed within the timeframe of the Centre’s Strategic Plan 2014–18. It has been developed within the context of the Australian Government’s aid policy and performance framework, and under the guidance of the Commission for International Agricultural Research and ACIAR’s Policy Advisory Council.
This AOP demonstrates how ACIAR’s programs capitalise on the Australian Government’s innovation and science agenda. ACIAR harnesses Australia’s agricultural innovation system for the benefit of developing countries and Australia. ACIAR’s partnerships generate jobs and growth, and promote innovation and enterprise.
