RDA Network


Under the RDA Charter, RDA Tasmania drives economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurship in regions through facilitating investment in community, industry and the environment. RDAs assist to bridge the regional development gaps in regions by working with a broad range of stakeholders across sectors and supporting the delivery of identified Australian Government strategic priorities.

As a representative of its local communities, RDA Tasmania:

  • focus their activities and strategy on delivery of the Australian Government’s Regional Investment Framework in their region, including investment in people, places, services, and industries and local economies
  • support regional stakeholders, including local government and the not-for-profit-sector, to seek grant opportunities that advance strategic regional priorities
  • support decarbonisation efforts and the transformation to a net zero economy and enable regional linkages between sectors to achieve these aims
  • build the evidence for economic development, including innovation and diversification strategies
  • facilitate meaningful engagement across the three levels of government to ensure investments deliver better outcomes for regions, and
  • contribute relevant data and local intelligence to support the evidence base to inform regional development strategies, program design and policy responses.

RDA Tasmania has a strong and cooperative relationship with the Tasmanian Government and the Local Government Association of Tasmania. The Tasmanian Government, through the Department of State Growth, provides in-kind support including accommodation and facilities for RDA Tasmania staff based away from the RDA's main office in Launceston.
