This special ‘Australian Benefits’ edition of ACIAR’s flagship publication, Partners, includes many examples of how ACIAR’s portfolio of research projects has helped the livelihoods of smallholder farmers overseas, while providing benefits back home.
This issue of Partners tells the story of ACIAR’s program to extend Conservation Agriculture to parts of the developing world in South Asia, Africa and China. Today, Australia has a higher percentage of land under Conservation Agriculture than any other country. ACIAR is working to share the Australian experience and the benefits with the dryland areas of the developing world.
This edition of Partners tells stories of opportunity—from poultry farmers in Tanzania and Mozambique selling chickens to nearby villagers, to oyster farmers in Vietnam attracting the interest of commercial buyers, it is smallholders who benefit.
This edition of Partners features a special report on Papua New Guinea (PNG), Australia’s nearest neighbour. Many of the stories were photographed and written by Paul Jones, a photojournalist who has worked for leading newspapers in Australia and the UK.
The June 2012 edition of Partners Magazine celebrates 30 years of achievements, drawing on and reprinting past articles to retell some of our best stories. It also tells the history of ACIAR through the eyes of some former employees as well as contributors and writers involved in producing Partners.
Partners Magazine June 2011 – August 2011 has a focus on ACIAR’s partnerships with the people working within ACIAR projects. This edition celebrates the dedication, enthusiasm and commitment of the people involved with ACIAR, and recognises that these qualities bring success to ACIAR projects.
Partners Magazine March 2011 – May 2011 has a focus on ACIAR’s partnerships with non-government organisations. Also in this issue we ‘celebrate women’ with a special edition of ACIAR’s roundup focusing on the achievements of women working with ACIAR.
