This report contributes towards the focus on the social
and policy dimensions of impact. The report has
two major parts. First, a new framework for impact
assessments is presented. The framework integrates
two distinct literatures that link research with policy
outcomes. Knowledge systems (Cash et al. 2003) and
the research and policy for development (RAPID)
literatures (Overseas Development Institute 2004) are
proposed as tools to analyse how knowledge flows

This report presents an impact evaluation of
Australian Centre for International Agricultural
Research (ACIAR)–funded projects in the cocoa
sector in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea (PNG).
These projects were completed between 2009 and
2015, so most of this evaluation is an analysis of
potential outcomes.

This report considers, from an impact assessment perspective, the potential effects
of private sector involvement in ACIAR – funded research projects. This report provides a broad framework for
thinking through the potential impacts of private sector engagement. It also considers
recent literature in the field and a case study of recent ACIAR-funded projects on cocoa
research, which involved considerable private sector participation.

This impact assessment study has
selected four projects, which were designed
to improve outcomes for women and families who are
smallholder farmers growing crops and raising cattle
in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), China, where land
degradation, access to water and poor agricultural
practices result in low crop productivity and poor
animal condition.

For the past 30 years, ACIAR has funded research aimed at controlling Newcastle disease in village chickens. In Africa, the Australian Government has contributed around $10.8 million to Newcastle disease control projects, about $1.1 million of which has been contributed by ACIAR. This report estimates total net benefits to Africa of around $479 million, which amounts to a benefit of around $60 for every dollar spent. Of the total benefits, about $80.6 million were attributed to ACIAR.

This study reports the findings of a review of 27 Impact Assessment Series reports (covering 103 bilateral research projects) published by ACIAR since 2005. This is the second ACIAR review of returns from bilateral investments, and confirms that returns are high. A few research areas, such as use of Australian trees in Indonesia, pig breeding in Vietnam, and grain storage in the Philippines, stood out as being particularly successful.
