This aim of this paper is to analyze how civil society organizations (CSOs) in developed and developing countries collaborate with governments through institutional processes. The concept of co-governance suggests that such collaboration can improve a government’s effectiveness. The vertical structures employed by the state and the horizontal structures embraced by civil society are forging collaborative relationships. Scholars of natural resource management argue that co-management involving public, civic, and private actors is crucial in directing development.
