This research proposes an agent-based model of conflicts, collaboration and trust among in Citarum river basin conflict. A conflict is unavoidable in daily life. Negotiation as an effort to resolve conflict is a very common process in everyday life. This is why negotiation process is studied in many scientific fields such as economy, political science, psychology, organizational behavior, decision sciences, operations research and mathematics (Sycara & Dai, 2010). This paper discusses steps in the model construction, model validation, and inferring policy using this agent-based model. Citarum River is the longest river in West Java province (Balai PSDA Wilayah Sungai Citarum, 2004). Many people depend on the Citarum River, making it one of the most strategic river in Indonesia (Puslitbang Sumber Daya Air, 2005). Unfortunately, Its condition now has changed completely (Sungkono, 2005). Since the industrialization in the 80s, It was turned into industrial landfills. Approximately there are 500 textile factories that dispose their waste into Citarum River without appropriate waste treatment. Its condition is worsened by the population explosion in the upstream area that also increased the number of illegal logging and disposal of household waste (Pemerintah Propinsi Jawa Barat, 2002). Flood always occurs during the rainy season due to sedimentation in downstream areas and increasing number of barren land. Citarum River Basin conflict involves at least 33 stake holders that have conflicting interest. Because of this, efforts to restore the condition of Citarum River become useless.
