  • Providing protection and long-term management of land with cultural and environmental values and assets
  • Maximising the productivity and use of Indigenous-held land that will deliver the greatest benefit for Indigenous people
  • Investing in land assets and enterprises that are economically sustainable, can leverage investment and take advantage of emerging markets and supply chain opportunities.
