The Remote Area Planning and Development (RAPAD) region is in transition – constrained through a long period of drought, it now has the potential to deliver an extra $1.5 billion in gross value added by 2031. To reach this potential, the region must build on its strengths, address its challenges and focus on key priority areas for action.
The RAPAD board with Queensland Department of State Development worked collaboratively with the RAI to identify priority areas that will grow the regional economy. This work used data analysis and supporting interviews to identify priorities and estimate local payoff potential.
