We will formally come together with all our partners every six months to discuss progress, resolve issues and learn from each other.

Every 12 months we will hold an Economic Development progress summit with all our partners and other interested parties, where we will discuss progress, emerging issues and refine the framework and actions as needed. We will publicly release an annual progress report.

The majority of these actions involve working with the private sector, Traditional Owners, land councils, pastoralists and landholders to achieve the desired outcomes.
