Strategic Procurement Outlook
The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) is a statutory authority that operates as part of the Australian Aid Program. The Centre encourages Australia’s agricultural scientists to use their skills for the benefit of developing countries and Australia.

Our mandate directs activities to developing countries in five regions: Papua New Guinea and Pacific island countries; East Asia; South and West Asia; Sub-Saharan Africa and Middle East and North Africa. Research is also allocated across regions through funding to other International Agricultural Research Centres (IARCs).
Our functions are to:
•commission research into improving sustainable agricultural production in developing countries
•fund project related training
