Partners magazine 2022 Issue 1
This year marks 40 years of ACIAR. For this edition of Partners we have invited a range of ACIAR associates, friends and staff to share their reflections. Their writing shows how the organisation has evolved and made a difference over those 4 decades.
Among our contributors is Professor Gabrielle Persley AM. She was one of the first employees of ACIAR in 1982 and has remained closely connected ever since. Professor Persley shares an extensive and insightful exploration of how ACIAR began. ACIAR General Manager, Country Partnerships, Dr Peter Horne shares his story and observations of ACIAR over his career both from within and outside the organisation. Our longest serving staff member Mirah Nuryati explores the evolution of our country network. Influential project leader Dr Harry Nesbitt, who worked on the ACIAR-funded Seeds of Life project in Timor-Leste, shares his thoughts on projects. And contemporary project leader Dr Brendan Brown (a former ACIAR graduate officer) considers the role ACIAR could play over the next 40 years.
