This \"tracking\" study was intended to provide the evidence-base of the outcomes, impacts, performance and sustainability of strengthened social capital in natural resources management (NRM) and to assess the uptake and dissemination of the processes and approaches for strengthening social capital as a follow-on to an earlier project that aimed at strengthening social capital for improving policies and decision making in NRM. The study contributes to make the construct of social capital operational and to the development of a more robust framework for monitoring and evaluating outcomes and potential impacts of strengthening social capital. The report addresses issues related to uptake promotion and scaling up-potential of research results, and highlights issues for further research on social capital. The project follows on from a participatory learning and action research project titled \"R7856: Strengthening social capital for improved policies and decision-making in natural resources management\" in the southwestern highlands of Uganda.
