Advisory bodies

The AIFSRC is working with the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) and a range of governments, organisations and institutions in Africa to identify priorities for research.

We are committed to continuing to build partnerships that address priorities developed through, and based on, consultation. To further this approach the AIFSRC is tapping into a range of international and Australian expertise.
