What is recovery?
Tasmania is recovering from the social and economic impacts caused by the coronavirus.
There have been business closures, supply chain challenges and market losses causing stress and hardship for many. Things have changed and if Tasmania can't return to what it was, recovery efforts will try and lead it to something better.
Recovery involves strategically overcoming or working around blockages that exist because of coronavirus and is the focus of many, including the RDA Tasmania Committee.
To understand our position on how Tasmania should manage the social and economic impacts of the pandemic we developed some direction around key principles that we consider important to support economic recovery, and how regions should approach the design of ‘economic recovery projects’.
The principles relate to:
- Place based approach
- Wrap around support
- Regional coordination
- Scale and scope
- Projects of priority
- Gap bridging projects
- Productive capacity
- Local decision making
- Timing and flexibility
To learn more about these principles please read RDA Tasmania's COVID-19 Principles for Recovery
How can we help?
RDA Tasmania can assist anyone working on a recovery projects, for example by leading them through the key principles of a successful economic development project or by connecting them to government and other forms of support.
We are also engaged with the Premier's Economic and Social Recovery Council, read more about them below.
