Regional Development Australia (RDA) - Orana is part of a national initiative based on building partnerships and ensuring that all governments and stakeholders are responsive to local priorities and needs. It is a conduit between government and local communities, and a provider of information.

RDA committees such as RDA - Orana are non profit community-based organisations. Committees comprise committed members of the region and represent the community, business and local government. Each RDA committee has a broad and diverse skills base and demonstrated networks and alliances. Each RDA committee includes members from local government.

RDA committees will have five key roles which, collectively, ensure that they achieve the outcomes required by governments:-

◦Consultation and Engagement with the Community
◦Informed Regional planning
◦Whole-of-Government Activities
◦Promotion of Government Programs
◦Community and Economic Development
