AbstractIn broad terms, sustainable development has been defined as a process whereby future generations receive as much capital per capita as –or more than– the present generation has available (WCED, 1987). Traditionally, this has included natural capital, physical or produced capital, and human capital (all durable production factors). Together they constitute the wealth of nations and form the basis of economic development and growth. However, these three types of capital only partially determine the process of economic development since they overlook the way in which economic actors interact within communities and organize themselves to produce demanded goods and services and also to increase the existing amount of the different types of capital. In this context, the concept of “social capital”, which according to Grootaert (1998) refers to the complementary norms, values, attitudes and beliefs that govern interactions among people and institutions and predispose them to cooperation and mutual assistance, has gained much prominence during the last two decades as a new kind of capital that boosts economic growth and sustainable development (Coleman, 1988 and 1990; Putnam et al., 1993).
