This is the second Research and Development Plan for the Joint Venture Agroforestry Program (JVAP).
The Plan has been prepared by the JVAP Management Committee. It builds on the strengths of the collaborative model developed under phase 1 and recognises the ongoing challenges facing the sector in meeting multiple needs. To date the Program has been successful with high recognition and support within the sector and natural resource management stakeholders.
The Plan is for all stakeholders in the agroforestry industry and Australian government. This includes both traditional tree crop industries, and new ventures which plant woody perennials to achieve commercial, social and environmental benefits. The R&D outcomes are intended to feed into farm management practices and policy development by government. The Program compliments the substantive support for farm forestry developed within the respective agencies and works closely with grower groups.

The Plan will be used by JVAP to guide the ongoing R&D investments that are made. The Plan will be implemented in accordance with the provisions of the Primary Industries and Energy Research and Development Act 1989.
