We are focused on bringing together data, policy and solutions to key challenges including workforce, housing, and infrastructure to meet industry demands. RDAA also plays an important role in bringing together policy and capability for the Regional SA RDAs where required. RDA Adelaide plays a unique role linking all regions within South Australia to key stakeholders in the metropolitan area.
We strive to identify ways to alleviate regional issues through coordinating strategic initiatives between government, stakeholders and industry and collaborating across borders and jurisdictions to drive investment and deliver critical infrastructure. Our goal is to not only improve the quality of living and business environments across regional South Australia, but lead sustainable, long-term projects that deliver generational benefits to our regions. When setting the strategic priorities, we have ensured that they can deliver outcomes in line with the new RDA Charter and address critical issues which are relevant across multiple regions.
These specifically include the four areas identified in the new Australian government Regional Investment Framework:
• Investing in People
• Investing in Places
• Investing in Services
• Investing in Industries & Local Economies
