This issue of Partners explores ACIAR-supported research that is building resilience-to COVID-19 and to other existing and emerging risks.
This issue digs deeper into other animal and plant diseases including African swine fever and wheat blast, and pests like fall armyworm. All loom as threats to food security and tackling them has become both more difficult and more urgent due to COVID-19.
We also look at how ACIAR has supported partners during difficult times and in challenging contexts.
Two projects-one current and one concluded-describe research activities in conflict-vulnerable regions of the Philippines and Iraq.
Catherine Marriott reflects on her six-year tenure with the Commission of International Agricultural Research and we illustrate how hands-on research can continue when the ability to travel pauses.
