Darling Downs and South West is one of the largest RDA regions in the network and covers 23% of Queensland. The vast distances between population centres and the diversity of contributors to the economic well-being of the region, creates significant challenges for any organisation charged with effectively advocating for priority government funding that will have the most benefit to the region strategically. Nevertheless, the Committee of RDA DDSW is committed to playing a pivotal role in ensuring the long-term sustainability of this region.

The aim of RDA-DDSW is to consult widely and regularly with communities, business, non-profit organisations and all levels of government to articulate local priorities, identify and align resources, engage stakeholders and promote solutions that support the economic growth and development of our single regional community.
