This paper distinguishes between bridging and bonding social capital when assessing their roles for individual farmers' adaptation strategies taken through technology adoption. Based on primary data collected in Lancang River (LCR) basin area in southwestern China, the paper finds: [1] adaptation measures have been widely taken by surveyed households, but non-infrastructure-based  measures are more prevalent than infrastructure-based measures; [2] surveyed households have strong social capital while having weak bridging social capital. Their bonding social capital is significantly and positively related to their adaptation decisions, but bridging social capital does not have such statistically significant relationship. It recommends that the governments contemplate carefully how to help the poor to get a good combination of bonding and bridging social capital when designing policies to help the rural poor to improve their long-term adaptive capacity and achieve sustainable rural development.
