Regional Development Australia

Regional Development Australia (RDA) is an Australian Government initiative that aims to bring
together all levels of government to enhance the growth and development of regional Australia.

The RDA network is being established throughout Australia to provide a strategic framework for
economic growth in each region. There are four key functions that underpin the role of the national
network of RDA committees:

         provide advice on consultation and community engagement;
         regional planning;
         promoting whole-of-Government programs, policies and initiatives; and
         community and economic development.

The network will ensure that input is provided to the Australian, State and Local Governments on
regional development issues and priorities; promote regions to secure sustainable long term jobs;
promote investment and regional prosperity; and raise awareness of programs and services
available to regional communities.

The network will also play a key role in ensuring that advice about key issues in the regions is
provided to all levels of government.
