During the final discussion session, there was general agreement to five key requirements for effective management of the TSR network. They were:
- An authority with oversight of TSRs that has stable and adequate resourcing for the task. This could build on existing institutional arrangements such as the LHPA, which is currently under review.
- Accessible data, providing more information than is currently available and in a more coordinated and streamlined format.
- Representative management that brings together the various values and interests and facilitates networking and information sharing.
- Educational programs to raise awareness of the wide importance of TSRs and help recognise and protect Aboriginal cultural heritage.
- An assessment of the economic significance of TSRs using a framework such as Total Economic Value, to recognise the full range of values including non use values.
