Abstract: "This paper reports experiences and inferences of an on- going study on the use of contemporary analytical tool, Multi-agent system (MAS) to study the dynamics and complex interactions among stakeholders in the management of common renewable resources. The study is being conducted as one of the components of the Levelling the Playing Field Project in Palawan, Philippines and is being implemented in the villages of San Rafael, Tanabag, and Concepcion, Puerto Princesa City in Palawan, Philippines. Here, the management of renewable resources is characterized by participation of many stakeholders who have different and competing interests, objectives and motives. The community groups and government and nongovernment organizations also have different positions of power that makes collaborative management difficult. Conflicting laws and environmental policies often lead to confusion and conflicts among the stakeholders. New management policies imposing new access rule to resources also threatens the livelihood of the community."
