Social Capital, Collective Action, and Collaboration
From the introduction:
The major research question addressed in this chapter is how social capital works to help overcome the collective action dilemma and foster collaboration. This chapter provides case studies that trace the role of social capital through two environment-focused systems, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program. The two examples demonstrate the importance of accumulated social capital in creating effective decision-making mechanisms for common pool resource management.
