Abstract: "Until recently, few attentions have been paid on the true meaning of social capital due to lack of data availability and problem associated with its measurement. This research attempts to bridge such a gap by conducting a study of social empowerment of households through social capital reinforcement for improving natural resources management such as water and land management. The premise of this research is that social capital variables (trust, network and social norms) play an important role in natural resources sustainability program. Based on those premise, it is imperative to understand the link between social capital and natural capital especially water and land which are important factor in farm areas in Bali Province. This study, therefore, attempts to model such a link by qualitative analysis. The result show that In Subak Guyama, Bali Province, social capital can increase household income in three ways: (1) by improving individual participation in a social network so that reducing transaction cost which is important in improving people's earnings. (2) Improving people's participation in local network and reducing rent seeking behavior so that it would facilitate collective action, (3) extending network and enhancing the level of social trust so that making villager have information about price, innovative technology and education services."
