This paper seeks for an empiric experience of the stakeholder to see the limits of Collaborative Management model that build in Lore Lindu National Park, and to have a clear understanding about weakness, and opportunities for Collaborative Management Board in Lore Lindu National Park. This paper analyses the limits of Collaborative Management Board, as one of the Collaborative Management models that build in Lore Lindu National Park. As it is understood, the Collaborative Management (Co-management) Board in Lore Lindu National Park is one of the stakeholder efforts (individual and groups) who are concerned with sustainable natural resources, social justice and enquiry, and community-based initiatives to minimise the conflict over natural resources in the park. The result presented on the paper are based on SWOT (Strengthening -- Weakness -- Opportunity -- Threatening) analysis, interviewed with the Head of Lore Lindu National Park Authority Management, FKTNLL coordinator, government and interviews with NGOs who work in Lore LIndu National Park, as well as analysis of reports, both published and available in World Wide Web. Since 2002, Collaborative Management models have been started in Lore Lindu National Park. The model is based in three main reasons. First, the communities needs on access and control to the natural resources surround them. Second, sharing the ``strength stakeholders'' controls over natural resources management. Third, accommodate the stakeholder's needs and interest. In Lore Lindu National Park case, ``the stakeholder's strength'' is government, private sectors, NGOs and researchers. Collaborative Management is a pathway to give more opportunity to solve the problems for both communities and stakeholders. To maximise the effort, it is important to understand that Collaborative Management Board might have its limitation. The knowledge and understanding of the limits will keep the stakeholders and social actors aware and prepare to anticipate the limits to reach the best results.
