This project aims to understand the disruptors and dynamics of agricultural production and its capacity in the province of Bali, within the context of the tourism and modern retail sectors being dominant and highly influential markets
Agriculture is both an important economic and social sector in Indonesia, comparable only with tourism.
This project aims to develop gender-inclusive seaweed development activities for long term health, income and wellbeing in coastal communities of Kiribati and Samoa.
Gender inclusive, nutrition-sensitive agriculture ensures the sustainable production of nutritious, affordable and safe foods to meet the dietary requirements of populations.
This project aims to develop and investigate adaptation options and strategies with people managing and living in salinity affected agricultural landscapes in the southern Indus Basin.
Australia and Pakistan share the challenges of developing agriculture within water scarce, salinity affected landscapes. As with the Murray-Darling Basin, salinity in the Indus Basin can be categorised as both primary (i.e. a natural phenomenon) and secondary (i.e. human-induced salinity/waterlogging from irrigation).
This project aims to empower communities and government to remotely and accurately monitor and evaluate peatland restoration, by integrating environmental data on peatland water and carbon fluxes with local decision-making structures. The interdisciplinary project proposes a combination of soil and ecological science with social science to ensure maximum benefit for communities and long-term useability.
Peatlands are increasingly being recognized as critical carbon stores in global climate change mitigation efforts.
This project aims to understand how government and non-government actors can best work together to deliver public-private partnerships in extension so the organic sector can capitalize on export demand.
Globally, commercial organics increased in production value by 345% (2000-2014), with demand outstripping supply by up to 40% for some produce types.
This project aims to develop a theory of change for inclusive agribusiness models for market-oriented value chains in the Philippines
The focus of this project is to bring together inclusive business models and community development to map the different plausible pathways by which outputs of research and use of technology will lead to outcomes and impact on the ground to improve smallholder livelihoods and develop their communities.
This project aims to address key issues and challenges associated with the safe sustainable production and intensification of high-value vegetable cropping options (particularly shallot and chilli) in coastal agro-ecosystems.
The coastal and upland agricultural systems of Indonesia support the livelihoods of the majority of rural people and vary in intensity from predominantly low-value rice production to highly intensive mixed rotations including high value vegetables.
This project aims to examine ACIAR research projects in relation to the processes of Lao policy-making to identify policy impact and distil the factors that determine the place of evidence-derived recommendations in policy formation and implementation in Laos
The Government of Lao PDR is increasingly seeking evidence to support policy development.
This project aims to explore the feasibility of biochar as a method for removing infected material from oil palm blocks whereby the evidence will be used to inform a future business case for oil palm derived biochar production in Papua New Guinea
Oil palm is a long-term perennial crop of great economic importance in South-East Asia and the Pacific, providing much needed income to both large plantations and smallholders. Unfortunately basal stem rot, caused by the fungus 'Ganoderma boninense', poses an increasingly major threat to the oil palm industry.
