Coretext is pleased to be working with the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research again to produce its Partners magazine over the next three years.

We met with the ACIAR team during a recent visit to Canberra, and work on Issue 3 for 2022 is now underway. During our visit we spotted a few familiar images in the hallways, which were part of our previous work with ACIAR.

This year ACIAR is celebrating its 40th anniversary as a facilitator of research and investment designed to improve the productivity and sustainability of agricultural and food systems in partner countries.

Its work is focused on five regions:

  • Papua New Guinea and Pacific island countries;

  • East Asia;

  • South and West Asia;

  • SubSaharan Africa; and

  • Middle East and North Africa.

ACIAR commissions research on agribusiness, climate change, crops, fisheries, forestry, horticulture, livestock systems, social systems, soil and land management and water to deliver specific development outcomes.

Over 40 years, ACIAR has commissioned and managed more than 1500 research projects in 36 countries. It has partnered with 150 institutions along with more than 50 Australian research organisations.

Many of the people who benefit from this work are smallholder farmers, artisanal fishers, small-scale operators in food supply chains and local consumers in developing countries.

Partners is a valuable tool that helps to promote ACIAR’s work, particularly in its partner countries where the printed magazine is easy to share with program participants, research partners and visitors to ACIAR offices. The magazine is also available online as part of ACIAR’s excellent digital resources.

Through Partners magazine, we look forward to being part of the important work ACIAR does to share agricultural and scientific expertise and building international capabilities that ultimately improve the lives of millions of people around the world.
