Our regional priorities

A partnership approach is critical to success and Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast recognises the various roles that community leaders, various government departments and community groups play alongside each other to achieve a common vision. Over 50 distinct and separate collaboration and consultation activities have been undertaken over the past twelve months to ensure a thorough understanding of the roles and activities each community group is undertaking. Underpinned by economic analysis in the 2013 State of the Region report, RDA Sunshine Coast has identified five significant priorities for the region: Economic development, investment and infrastructure, digital innovation, human capital and sustainable communities. Underpinning these regional priorities is the need for regional leadership. These priorities have been outlined in the Sunshine Coast Regional Roadmap 2013-16, and detailed further on the Regional Roadmap pages.
