Microfinance, Social Capital and Natural Resource Management Systems: Conceptual Issues and Empirical Evidences

Murali, K.S.

Publication Date:

This is a review of various papers on microfinance programmes undertaken in natural resource management projects. An attempt is made to understand how the building of social capital enhances the propensity to develop natural capital. It is argued that there is lack of evidence to show that social capital increases the chance of improving natural capital and discusses various issues associated with natural resource management. The paper also stresses the need to adopt an integrated approach to seek evidence of natural resource building efforts through improving social capital.
