This project aimed to provide guidance on possible partners and commissioned organisations that can effectively and appropriately be engaged to work within ACIAR research projects focused primarily on upland agricultural issues in Myanmar, and to explore potential research and development pathways with non-government agencies.

Arrangements for joint agricultural research and development investments in partner countries, between in-country organisations and Australia, occasionally need to adapt to rapidly changing governance conditions. Given the difficult political situation in Myanmar at the time, this project proposed that Myanmar be the focus of a study on alternative partnering arrangements.

To be of a manageable scale, the project focused on productive upland agricultural environments in Myanmar, particularly upland cropping system in the Central Dry Zone and Shan State.
