ACIAR works with international partners to foster and implement global research collaborations that support strategic development in agriculture, fisheries and forestry.

By leveraging strategic international partnerships, we can continue to influence and promote more productive and sustainable agricultural systems to benefit low- and lower-middle-income countries and Australia.

We build and maintain multilateral partnerships with a range of international organisations, institutes, and associations engaged in agricultural research and the delivery of global public goods. 

Our goal is to be a valued, engaged donor and a robust and innovative partner in international agricultural research. The funding and support of international agricultural research centres are one of the roles of ACIAR, mandated by the ACIAR Act.

We foster and maintain active working relationships with international agricultural research centres by providing timely, reliable and consistent funding and strategic advice on research and governance.
