During the final discussion session, there was general agreement to five key requirements for effective management of the TSR network. They were:

  1. 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.
  2. Accessible data, providing more information than is currently available and in a more coordinated and streamlined format.
  3. Representative management that brings together the various values and interests and facilitates networking and information sharing.
  4. Educational programs to raise awareness of the wide importance of TSRs and help recognise and protect Aboriginal cultural heritage.
  5. 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.
