Crawford’s Legacy of Partnership
Founded in 1982, and initially given a ten-year lifespan, Australian Centre for International Agriculture Research (ACIAR) sought to prove its worth through increases in agricultural productivity resulting from collaboration between state-level government scientists and local partners abroad. After renewal, ACIAR’s second decade saw a new focus on poverty reduction and the real-life adoption of new technologies and techniques. ACIAR’s third decade saw whole-of-government strategies toward Australia’s engagement within developing countries, particularly in response to the “war on terror” and the global food crisis. Public research needed to justify itself within national priorities and program-level outcomes, such as contributing to Australia’s economy and security, rather than simply pursuing individual projects based on their own merit.
