The Kangaroo Island Futures Authority was formed by the South Australian Government in 2011 on the recommendation of the State Economic Development Board's Paradise Girt by Sea report. KIFA is overseen by an advisory board led by the Chair of the Economic Development Board and provides advice to the Deputy Premier.

The role of the Kangaroo Island Futures Authority (KIFA) is to:

  • deliver economic, environmental and social sustainability and a viable and prosperous community now and into the future
  • coordinate government service delivery to Kangaroo Island
  • increase the Island's social prosperity.
