Abstract

This article describes the resilience of local communities living in two mining locations. Through the theoretical framework of resilience, the research reveals how local communities can survive social-ecological changes due to mining activities in two districts of Morosi and Moramo, Southeast Sulawesi. By using a mixture of quantitative and qualitative methods where the methods used surveys and focus group discussions/FGDs . This research reveals at a glance, the resilience of local communities in dealing with changes in mining areas can be seen from their adaptation to change and shifting jobs from agriculture/plantation to service workers. This transition is one way for local people to survive the change. Our study also reveals that the role of social capital in the community is an important factor in facing challenges from the changing environment of mining activities.
