Research Institutes in Vanuatu

The Vanuatu National Cultural Council (VNCC), operating under Vanuatu Cultural Research Policy, approves and monitors projects by outside research institutions that focus on issues of importance to Vanuatu’s cultural heritage. The Vanuatu Cultural Centre runs the on-going Oral Traditions Collection Project, which aims to document the remembered histories and traditions, details of ritual practices, classification systems and languages of Vanuatu. The Vanuatu Agriculture Research and Technical Centre (VARTC) conducts applied agriculture and livestock research. The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research works with local organisations in Vanuatu, developing sustainable strategies to improve production of sustenance farming and cash crops as well as larger-scale development in the agricultural, fisheries and forestry industries.
