IRCA Oceania


IRCA-Oceania exists to bring a uniquely antipodean perspective to the work of IRCA. We endeavour to encourage rural people in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific to come to together to share their experiences and challenges.

The operating guidelines for IRCA-Oceania, adopted on the 6th July 2012, can be found HERE
