TIA staff work on a wide range of projects outside Australia including research partnerships with universities and agricultural research organisations, as well as assisting countries to increase their agricultural output.
TIA works with the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) – a statutory authority that operates as part of the Australian Government's development cooperation program. ACIAR funds research projects that are developed within a framework reflecting the priorities of Australia's aid program and national research strengths, together with the agricultural research and development priorities of partner countries.
ACIAR's mandate directs activities to developing countries in five regions: Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands; Indonesia, East Timor and the Philippines; Mekong countries and China; South and West Asia; and Africa. Research is also allocated across regions through funding to other International Agricultural Research Centres (IARCs).
