Purpose: In this research, we aimed to identify the pattern of cooperative relations among the Pistachio producers in Damankuh rural district in Damghan. The social capital among the producers was also evaluated. Design/methodology/approach: In this paper, the cooperative relations and the social capital among the Pistachio producers in Mehmandoost, Zarrinabad and Hoseinabad Doolab, which are located in Damankooh in Damghan, were studied by applying social network analysis method. Thus, 66 people from Mehmandoost, 70 producers from Zarrinabad, and 74 farmers from Hosseinabad Dulab were studied. The relations which were studied included cooperation in exchanging farming tools, irrigation of Pistachio orchards, marketing and pest control. For analyzing these relations, we used network- level indicators of social network analysis including density, centralization, reciprocity, transitivity and Geodesic distance. These indicators were analyzed in the UCINET software. Finding: Results showed that the network macro-level indicators including density, centralization, reciprocity, transitivity and geodesic distance in studied villages were very low. This has caused problems for producers to cooperate with each other and threatens the stability of producers’ network and indicates cooperation among pistachio producers requires tremendous investment of both time and cost. Research limitations/implications: Problems like accessing farmers, distributing questionnaires among them and the long time needed in order to interview them were among the challenges faced in this research. Practical implications¬: In order to increase cooperation among the producers and social capital in their network it is suggested that farmers be instructed and informed by holding cooperative workshops, handling their problems in irrigation and pest control, running local cooperatives for supporting the farmers in the crop prices and paying attention to their demands. Originality/value: Given the importance of the studied area in the production of Pistachio, paying attention to cooperation and social capital among producers, can be a big step in using the fertility (potentiality) of this region to develop and improve the Pistachio production.

اولویت بندی راهبردهای توسعه در مناطق روستایی با رویکرد توسعة پایدار (مطالعة موردی: روستاهای ناحیة شمال غرب استان اصفهان)
حوزه های تخصصی:
هدف: توسعة پایدار روستایی، فرآیندی است که بر ارتقای همه جانبة حیات روستایی از طریق زمینه سازی و ترغیب فعالیت های هم ساز با قابلیت ها و تنگناهای محیطی تأکید می کند؛ اما دست یابی به این مهم مستلزم اخذ بهترین راهبرد، متناسب با ویژگی های هر ناحیة روستایی است. تحقیق حاضر با هدف تعیین اولویت راهبردهای توسعه در روستاهای ناحیة شمال غرب استان اصفهان صورت گرفته است. روش تحقیق: پژوهش حاضر توصیفی- تحلیلی و ابزار آن پرسش نامه است که توسط کارشناسان تکمیل شد. پس از تعیین راهبردهای توسعة پایدار روستایی در ناحیة مورد مطالعه ۱۰ راهبرد به عنوان بهترین گزینه انتخاب شدند. سپس جهت سنجش راهبرد بهینة توسعة پایدار شاخص هایی انتخاب شد. برای این منظور کارشناسان طی سه مرحله شاخص های سنجش راهبرد بهینة توسعة پایدار روستاهای ناحیة مورد مطالعه را در چهار دستة اقتصادی (دارای ۶ زیرمعیار)، اجتماعی (دارای ۵ زیرمعیار)، کالبدی- فضایی (دارای ۴ زیرمعیار)، زیست- محیطی (دارای ۴ زیرمعیار) انتخاب کردند و سپس ضریب تأثیر شاخص ها با تکنیک AHP بررسی و وزن دهی شد. در نهایت، با روش پرومتی راهبرد بهینة توسعة پایدار روستاهای شمال غرب اصفهان انتخاب شد. یافته ها: بررسی های صورت گرفته در این پژوهش نشان داد که از بین شاخص های بررسی شده شاخص ایجاد و گسترش شغل های جدید، شاخص تأسیسات و تجهیزات زیربنایی و نیز شاخص انطباق با استعداد منطقه دارای بیشترین اهمیت است. از سوی دیگر، براساس همین شاخص ها و با توجه به راهبردهای انتخابی کارشناسان، در نهایت معلوم شد که راهبرد برنامه ریزی توسعة توریسم و نیز راهبرد مشارکت مردمی، بالاترین رتبه را در انتخاب بهینه ترین استراتژی توسعة روستایی کسب کرده اند؛ به این معنا که در منطقة مورد مطالعه بهترین راهبرد توسعه، توجه به اصل گردش گری و فراهم کردن زیرساخت های توسعة آن است؛ ضمن آن که بهره-گیری از مشارکت مردم بومی می تواند تحقق توسعة پایدار روستایی ناحیه را فراهم آورد. راهکارهای عملی: در مطالعات و برنامه ریزی نواحی روستایی، شناسایی نیازمندی ها و اولویت بندی آن ها می تواند موفقیت برنامه ها را تضمین کند. از آن جایی که در اغلب برنامه های توسعة روستایی، به تنوع در فعالیت های اقتصادی کمتر توجه شده و اکثراً بر کشاورزی به صورت تک بعدی تأکید می شود و با توجه به این که هر ناحیة روستایی از توان متفاوتی برای توسعه برخوردار است، توجه به تمامی توان مندی های بالقوة روستاها می تواند تا حد زیادی روستاها را از مشکلات متعددی که گریبان گیر آن هستند رهایی بخشد.
