Regional Development Australia Northern Territory (RDA NT) is a local not-for-profit concerned with supporting the sustainable development of the Northern Territory.
We work to identify and facilitate diverse projects that contribute towards this broad objective. We use the power of partnerships, across three tiers of government, industry, and other not-for-profits, to maximise our impact.
RDA NT is part of a national network of 53 RDAs. This network is an initiative of the Australian Government, overseen by the Federal Minister for Regional Development through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development. RDA NT also partners closely with the Northern Territory Government.
RDA NT is led by a committee comprised of representatives from across the Territory, thereby allowing local people to develop local solutions to local issues. The RDA NT Committee consists of a Chair appointed by the Federal Minister, and members appointed by the Chair. The Committee is supported by a small team of staff.
RDA NT performs a range of functions in response to stakeholder needs. In order to identify those needs we engage with local and national organisations who contribute to regional development, see The NT Regional Network and The Northern Australia Regional Network.
Through broad consultation we identify opportunities to value add by sharing information, providing assistance, and partnering to deliver outcomes.
We are flexible and responsive to the needs of varied stakeholders with diverse interests.
