In the last 35 years, ACIAR has supported many mango related projects, creating significant impact for the industry within at least 8 countries. The impacts could be further amplified with more strategic planning and a stronger focus on communication and collaboration between ACIAR projects and stakeholder communities. This approach to mango research, within the Mango Agribusiness research program; in conjunction with ACIAR partner country research institutions, has the potential to create strong aligned networks, to share mango information on research and development outcomes. This SRA provides the linkages, communication, collaboration and capacity building necessary to bring alignment and engagement to the broader mango agribusiness research program.
