Our increased knowledge and awareness of the environment and the finite capacity of the world‘s resources has seen increased regional tensions and conflicts over natural resource development and land use planning. This study uses two separate approaches to investigation, incorporating case study method and grounded theory analysis. The region of Clayoquot Sound has a history of land use controversy from which to index the nature and complexity of conflicting interests. In conducting a conflict assessment and thematic frame analysis this study explores the nature of conflicting perceptual frames and arrives at an explanatory theory about how those frames contribute to conflict situations and present barriers to effective communication and participation in collaborative management efforts. The final discussion highlights ways in which approaches to dealing with value diversity can help build shared understandings and reduce biases and mistrust, which tend to exacerbate conflict, and improve capacity for action.
