What we do
The Australian International Food Security Research Centre (AIFSRC) is accelerating the delivery and adoption of agricultural innovations for food security. We are doing this by bridging the gap between the development and adoption of research outcomes. These innovations include technologies, enabling policies and improved farming practices.
The AIFSRC works through collaborative partnerships to help understand and overcome barriers to adoption, whether these barriers are social, economic or technical. Our approach to enhance innovation uptake aims to increase agricultural productivity, generate additional income and promote food security. This will in turn improve the resilience and livelihoods of smallholder farmers and ultimately contribute to economic development.
