Dr Peter Batt is the lead mentor in our Cambodian program, where he works to build relationships with the donor, current and past research programs, the Royal Government of Cambodia, research institutes and NGOs with a view towards identifying opportunities for Australian volunteers and short-term training programs to add value to rural development activities.

Peter brings considerable expertise to the Crawford Fund’s mentor program. He was Professor of Food and Agribusiness Marketing at Curtin University up until 2014, and since then he has been consulting with international organisations including FAO, the International Finance Corporation, CTA and Australian institutions such as the ASEAN-Australia Council, the Ord River District Co-operative Ltd and AEGIC, covering countries including the Pacific Islands, Cambodia, Brunei Darussalam, Thailand and the Philippines.
