Who we are
The Resilience Initiative for Food and Agriculture is founded by the CSIRO, ANU and DFAT. It will foster research and development collaboration between research, industry and government agencies interested in creating pathways towards more resilient agri-food systems.
Partners will be involved in research, development, implementation, capacity building, teaching, information sharing, and investment aimed at supporting broader capacity for impact in the Asia-Pacific.
We are actively seeking emerging partnership opportunities with aligned groups, particularly those focused on global food systems and food security innovations.
Australian National University is a world-leading university with a focus on excellence in research and education to address complex contemporary challenges. The Resilience Initiative will draw on expertise from across the ANU’s seven academic colleges and twenty-seven schools, with its core staff based in the Climate Change Institute.
