Résumé
This thesis explores the role of social learning, institutions, and social capital for soil conservation studies. Data were collected through qualitative and quantitative methods. The interviews were analyzed with the aid of ATLAS.ti. The data from surveys was analyzed using a probit model. The findings show that social learning creates opportunity for broader understanding on soil conservation, the emergence of trust and mutual understanding, the application of indigenous and scientific knowledge and the creation of social capital. In order to govern the learning and the adoption process, institutions were found useful. Thus, social learning, institutions and social capital encourage soil conservation innovations. Soil conservation strategies should consider investing in social learning and institutions
