ACIAR is an arm of the Australian Government’s Official Development Assistance Program. Its charter is to commission research that leads to more productive and sustainable agriculture through collaborative projects involving Australia and developing-country partners. In helping developing countries to help themselves ACIAR aims to help them become self-sufficient in tackling their own problems.
BiCEP research is supported through funding from ACIAR’s Forestry Program. This ACIAR program contributes to poverty alleviation and natural resource conservation and rehabilitation through scientific support for the establishment, management and sustainable utilisation of forests, providing optimum social, economic and environmental benefits to partner countries and Australia. Areas of focus include: development of silvicultural systems and improved germplasm, harvesting and processing approaches and the management of threats.Visit Website
