Abstract

This study analyses social, economic and political ‘lock-ins’ for understanding community resilience and land degradation. The study focuses on lock-ins from within communities, using four case study communities in Italy affected by land degradation. The analysis highlights the complex interrelationships between various lock-ins, and suggests that the communities are on pathways of declining resilience that may lead to increasing difficulties in addressing land degradation issues in future.
