Investing in Regions
Jurisdiction: South Australia
How might the Government prioritise its investment in regional South Australia for greatest regional development benefit?
Regional development incorporates social interactions, liveability (amenity, sporting opportunities, art and culture, events, access to services), economic growth (industry and business growth, diversity of industry, number and diversity of job opportunities).
The services provided and infrastructure available in a regional area are key factors in the liveability of a location. Whether an individual or a family wants to remain in a region or relocate there, and whether investors are attracted to a region, is often influenced by these factors.
If the Government gets smarter about how and where it invests in services and infrastructure, we can create big and lasting change for South Australia’s regions.
This challenge aims to develop new innovative ideas where data can be used to analyse which regional South Australian locations the Government should invest in to gain the greatest regional development benefits.
