Impact assessment reports
Evaluating the impact of the investment in research, development and extension is a core business process for the GRDC. Therefore several independent impact assessment studies are commissioned each year to examine economic, environmental, and social benefits of GRDC's investment in projects. GRDC uses these impact assessment studies to understand how effectively it is delivering desired outcomes to its key stakeholders.
The guidelines used for assessing impact across Rural Research & Development Corporations (CRRDCC) have been reviewed by key economic agencies of the Australian Government including Treasury, Department of Finance & Regulation, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (DAFF), Productivity Commission and the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ABARE).
