EI-ADO (Analysing Agribusiness Development Opportunities in Eastern Indonesia) is a series of agribusiness value chain studies funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), commissioned by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).

The aim of the studies was to identify agricultural value chains and private sector agribusiness development opportunities with the greatest potential to increase the incomes of poor men and women in East Java (EJ), West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), and East Nusa Tenggara (NTT). The EI-ADO value chain studies were based on the Making Value Chains Work Better for the Poor (M4P) research methodology.

The outputs from the research were used to inform the new DFAT program: Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Promoting Rural Income through Support for Markets in Agriculture (AIP-PRISMA - PDF 344 KB), which aims to contribute to a 30% or more increase in net incomes for 300,000 poor rural female and male farmers across Eastern Indonesia by 2017.
