Chapter synopsis: Despite the small number of specific articles and reports on the subject, social benefits of CA cover several areas such as farmers’ organisation, soil governance and water conservation, social capital and community development, food security and nutritional aspects that are reviewed in this chapter. The successful adoption of CA in South America had a strong effect on farmers’ communication and organisation that can be considered the major social benefit of CA that was spread all over the world. In regions where adoption is massive CA is capable to create soil and water governance. Varied socioeconomic benefits are achievable by the use of CA and are described. Effects on social capital building, community development and improvement in nutritional aspects promoted by CA adoption mainly in Africa are also described.
