Abstract

This report presents results from Landcare NSW’s 2017 and 2018 surveys of the capacity of its member organisations who are Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative (LLCI) hosts. The survey uses an assessment framework (Mitchell & Allan, 2018) that categorises capacity into five capital types, three of which relate to social capital: bonding social capital (how cohesive the group is), bridging social capital (how well the group connects with others) and organisational capital (how well the group organises internally). Thirty-two organisations completed the survey in 2017, while 27 did so in 2018, with 17 of these completing the survey in both years. The Landcare NSW survey results suggest that, overall, Landcare organisations have high levels of bonding and bridging social capital relative to their desired levels of these capitals. There is slightly lower satisfaction with their organisational capital, and physical and financial capital. Capacity measures for each organisation can be usefully tracked over time, which can further enhance understanding about group capacity, and the consequences of investing in that capacity.
