The results of herdsmen's collective development in Tibet depend on ttwo interrelated stages: how are the public resources transferred to pastoral villages, and how are they transformed into herdsmen's endogenous development ability. Based on the analysis framework of "system-life", this paper investigates the phenomenon of herdsmen's collective development in GeJi county. It is found that the herdsmen's collective development is essentially the result of "interactive co-governance" between local government and herdsmen's society. The local government strongly embeds into herdsmen's society through the selection of village cadres and provision of policy projects , and promotes the orderly changes of herdsmen's society within the collective framework on the basis of respecting the livelihood mode of the pastoral areas. The village collective undertakes the government public resources, and adopts the flexible conformity means such as emotion association and benefit association. It guides the herdsmen's collective development from the "system" form to the "entity" form, and effectively realizes the village public reproduction. In the process of herdsmen's collective development, the continuous interaction between system and life enhances the herdsmen's endogenous development capability. The herdsmen see the possibility of solving their own survival crisis, and the consistency of interests arouses the sense of trust and belonging to the collective. The herdsmen's collective development is entering a virtuous cycle.
