Show Summary Details


This chapter describes organisations that undertake the tasks of local and regional economic development (LRED) in Australia. It analyses the views of Australian LRED organisations on what constrains their effectiveness and what would improve it. The chapter suggests that the performance of LRED can be improved by ensuring that there is a stable and recognised LRED organisation in each region with the ability to lead on strategy development, and by developing a more effective framework for cooperation between organisations belonging to the different levels of government, including whole-of-government approaches which incorporate all three levels.

Keywords: LRED; Australia; performance; effectiveness; strategy development; cooperation; government
