The Illawarra Shoalhaven Smart Region strategy is the result of a co-creation process involving over 30 representatives across Government, academia, industry and community. The Smart Region Strategy builds on and complements the many other initiatives already supporting the future development of the Illawarra Shoalhaven Region.
RDA Illawarra worked alongside industry stakeholders, The Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation and the region's four Councils (Kiama, Wollongong, Shoalhaven, Shellharbour) to create the strategy in order to embark on a journey to become a Smart Region.
In November 2018, the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Smart Water Management Project, from the strategy was successfull in receiving funding from the Federal Government. The Project will see the installation of data sensors to provide real-time information on flood risks during extreme weather events.
