RDA is a partnership between the federal, state, territory and local governments, the private sector and local communities to strengthen regional communities and build their long-term economic, social and environmental sustainability. This is the first time all three levels of government are working together to develop Queensland’s regions. RDA QLD will be the first point of contact across all levels of government to promote regional initiatives and partnerships and make sure that they respond to local needs.

RDA committees will be prime players in building relationships and links between governments and local communities. They offer the opportunity for local communities to have a genuine voice at regional, state and national levels.
