The article presents a discussion on collaborative politics through a discussion on natural resource management. It cites the research project on social harmony in catchment management. A catchment is an area of land that drains rainfall to the sea or lake. It argues that community participation and the subjective values of community action must be accorded respect in collaborative processes and incorporated into strategic thinking. Collaborative politics is used to describe a process in which participants from conflicting interests, knowledge and agendas are attempting to achieve a common goal.
