The Crawford Fund highlights benefits to Australia and developing countries of research for agriculture and development; supports Australians in training developing country scientists and farmers, and supports young Australians in their careers, studies and volunteering for food and nutrition security.
The Crawford Fund has a considerable resource ‘library’ of the materials it generates as part of its outreach, State and Territory Committee, training, public policy and corporate governance activities and requirements.
For a comprehensive introduction into what we do, and the environment in which we operate, we strongly recommend you read our latest Annual Report and Annual Conference Proceedings.
