Abstract: We explore the influence of community structure on the effectiveness of social sanction in promoting cooperative behavior in populations sharing common pool resources. We found that the formation of community within a population is not necessarily associated with a higher level of cooperation. In fact, our results show that defectors tend to survive better in populations with weak community structure. Nonetheless, as we further strengthened the community structure within a social network, we uncovered the occurrence of a transition towards a regime of greater cooperation. In this respect, our results provide deeper insights into the manner in which governance structures can have important influence on the management of coupled socio-ecological systems.
