The aim of this project is to better understand the existing data in ACIAR and MFAT livestock projects/programs, and the attittudes and interest of project partners to participate in livestock MRV activities into the future.
The expectation is that this would lead to a ‘shortlist’ of countries/projects that would be engaged with the development of livestock emissions accounting tools and capacity building for Tier 2 inventories and LCA in a sub-set of countries in the subsequent phase of work under this co-investment.
This project aims to deliver and validate wood processing technologies to transform coconut and other currently low-value forest resources into high-value engineered wood products suitable for local and international markets.
By providing new, profitable outlets for low-value log products, we can increase the returns from these materials to farmers, timber growers and processors, contribute to the renewal of the coconut estate, and expand employment and trade.
This project aims to develop an evidence-based approach that identifies the specific risk of economic hardship and food insecurity that women have experienced during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic in Myanmar, the Philippines and Papua New Guinea.
Stage 2 of the ACIAR COVID19 assessment identified that gender inequity and its consequences were significant vulnerabilities across the Indo-Pacific region, and while some progress has been made in gender equality, significant inequality for women and girls remains persistent.
This assessment aims to provide a prospective analysis of the types of social protection that may promote agricultural development and reduce rural poverty, that needs to acknowledge that humans are a fundamental source of (mostly negative) environmental change.
This assessment will focus on the opportunities for social protection measures to build the resilience of farming and rural households to local, regional and global shocks.
This project aims to develop sound weed management methods for direct seeded rice under two lowland agroecosystems; and as a result of good weed control in the field, establish the benefit in terms of grain quality.
The proposed project will develop a package of weed control practices for the evolving lowland cropping systems of Cambodia and Lao PDR.
This project aims to assist the Indonesian government (MMAF) and stakeholders to build the basis for system wide monitoring and evaluation of alternative management measures, in terms of their impacts on vulnerable, tuna fisheries dependent communities.
Tuna fisheries in Indonesia are extensive and multi-sectoral, ranging from small-scale to industrial vessels, and with high levels of dependency on these fisheries for livelihoods and food among low income groups.
This project aims to evaluate how and in which contexts Farmers’ Hubs facilitate the dissemination of new products, practices, and services to smallholder farmers and the broader farming community as commercial service providers.
The traditional view of innovation in agricultural systems involves linear information dissemination, usually from a research provider, through a publicly-funded extension system to support the adoption of new practices by farmers.
This project aims to scope and design alternative small-scale fishery business models for South Fly and Fly River communities in the Western Province of PNG, with a focus on women’s roles in mud crab fisheries and tilapia processing.
Located in Western Province and bordering the Torres Strait of Australia and Papua Province of Indonesia, the South Fly and Fly River region is remote and isolated from major domestic markets.
This project aims to simultaneously improve human health and livestock productivity through reduced transmission of Taenia solium between livestock and smallholder farmers.
This will be achieved by implementing and evaluating joint human-animal intervention strategies which provide best practice for mitigating transmission, leading to reduced parasitic disease in people and their pigs and an increase in production animal related income.
