Abstract

Highlights

• Presentation of an original definition of social innovations for marginalised rural areas. Key mechanisms that enable efforts for social innovations in forest-dependent communities to emerge and develop.
• Transdisciplinary framework of theoretical-empirical expert understanding of SI in forest-dependent communities.
• Identification of key factors and SI transition stages for forest- dependent communities in marginalised rural areas.
• Determination of the key development trajectories that differ by type of actors and knowledge which enter the action arena.
• Determine the adaptive or transformative character of social innovations in forest-dependent communities.
