ACIAR is increasing its investment in, and expanding the range of, project evalutions. One component of this is an initiative to look back on all large projects (>$400,000 outlays by ACIAR) three to four years after their completion. These studies are designed to highlight the level of uptake of project results. This publication, the second compilation of reports for assessing the adoption of ACIAR projects, refers to projects completed in 2000-2001. From the lessons learnt in these studies, we hope to improve our future efforts and to provide direction for subsequent economic impact assessments undertaken when project results have been taken up by end users.
