Role of Social Capital in Pastoralist Resource Management

This project evolved as a partnership with Eva Kaye-Zwiebel, to further analyze her dissertation research findings through the lens of social capital and ecosystem services.  The resulting manuscript argues that neighboring communities express different perceptions of ecosystem services and also exhibit differing forms and levels of social capital.  These present important considerations when planning development initiatives.
