Abstract

Achieving outcomes on the ground is crucial to sustainable natural resource management. Stakeholder involvement is not only a central tenet of sustainable management, it also contributes to outcomes through engendering commitment. This article explores, through three natural resource sectors in Australia, the elements of such involvement contributing to commitment and hence outcomes. The activities of three advisorylconsultative groups from the protected area, agricultural and mining sectors provided the case studies. It is evident from these caseS that perceptions of fairness, identifying a planning process as the 'place to be' and realising mutual benefits were the key elements. Natural reSource managers and opinion leaders can foster these elements by building partnerships, managing impressions and allowing suffiCient time for planning and collaboration.
