Resumo inglês:Law 9433, of January 8, 1997, created the so called Watershed Committee in Brazil, mainly as a response to the society and professionals involved in the area, who envisaged the Committee as being able to provide great possibilities of managing the conflicts and environmental risks in a decentralized and participative way. But, these expectations raise one of the questions proposed in this study: Will the Committee reduce the conflicts? Thus, the process of establishment of the Rio Doce Watershed Committee was analyzed, more especifically regarding civil society participation and the major potential and real conflicts involved. It was verified a consensus and concern by all the social sectors regarding the existence of environmental problems and risks caused by an industrial society; however, the solution to these issues is hidden in non-consensual questions, even for the scientists. Besides, there is a tendency for increased conflicts concerning the collection and application of resources and grants, as well as conflicts involving competence among municipalities in function of zoning and framing. The issue of representativity of an organized civil society, either in numerical or economic terms, is a fragile one, given the participation conditions. The question of voluntarism was also envisioned, with positive or negative incentive mechanisms being necessary in order to motivate continuing participation in the Committee.
