About National Agriculture Research Institute (NARI)

The National Agriculture Research Institute (NARI) was established by an Act of the National Parliament of Papua New Guinea (PNG) in July 1996 as a public funded, statutory research organisation to conduct and foster applied and adaptive research into:

  • any branch of biological, physical and natural sciences related to agriculture;
  • cultural and socio-economic aspects of the agricultural sector, especially of the smallholder agriculture; and
  • matters relating to rural development and of relevance to PNG.

We are also responsible for providing analytical, diagnostic and technical advisory services and information to support the agriculture sector in PNG. Our strategic objective (purpose) is to enhance productivity, efficiency, stability and the sustainability of the smallholder agriculture sector in the country so as to contribute to the improved welfare of rural families and communities who depend wholly or partly on agriculture for their livelihoods. This is intended to be accomplished through our mission of promoting innovative agricultural development in PNG through scientific research, knowledge creation and information sharing. Our vision is “Prosperous PNG Agricultural Communities”. Our core values are leadership, innovativeness, integrity, communication and organisational excellence.
