The essay attempts at an analysis of collaborative policymaking in contexts of complexity of public action. The empirical case that is addressed is the policy design of planning tools for wetland governance. The institutional collaborative policy design is framed as one of the trajectories of the interactive State in an original combination of top-down and bottom-up dynamics of policy-making. The focus is, on the one hand, on the democratization of public decision-making processes and, on the other hand, on the need to increase institutional capacity to deal with public issues by supporting social innovation processes. The main features of collaborative policy design are then exemplified, deepening in particular some types of instrumentation for ecological transition.
