The Role of Landcare Group Networks in Rural Australia: Exploring the Contribution of Social Capital.
Sobels, Jonathan; Curtis, Allan; Lockie, Stewart
Journal of Rural Studies, v17 n3 p265-76 Jul 2001
Australian Landcare groups of volunteers, farmers, and other landowners address local conservation and land use issues. In studies of two networks of Landcare groups, networks attracted funding, created opportunities for participation and shared learning, improved communication and management practices, and increased member knowledge. These outcomes were promoted by elements of social capital: trust, norms, linkages, and reciprocity. (Contains 46 references.) (Author/SV)
