Researchers in Agriculture for International Development (RAID)
RAID is an Australian-based network of researchers involved in international agricultural research for development.
- Raises awareness about the value of ag R4D;
- Facilitates networking and knowledge among researchers;
- Builds capacity and capability of early career to mid-career researchers; and
- Promotes career pathways into ag R4D.
RAID has over 500 members around Australia and internationally. The network is hosted by the Crawford Fund and supported by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research for Development (ACIAR).
RAID at USC
USC has an excellent research reputation in fields related to agriculture, aquaculture, forestry, land management and social science.
We want to use RAID to bring this diverse group of researchers together to strengthen connections among researchers and research centres and create an active network to support interest and promote opportunities in agriculture and international development.
