Gender Equity Portal

The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) has created this portal as an informative and inspirational resource for women and men from developing countries, Australia and around the world.

Our agricultural research with partner countries in our region reflects our commitment to our strategic objective of improving gender equity and empowerment of women and girls, which is critical for progressing many other Sustainable Development Goals, including reducing poverty, hunger and malnutrition.

On these pages, we have collated stories and information, and created a collection of resources, relating to ACIAR's commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
