Abstract: 
The present study seeks to measure indicators influencing the resilience of users of Hagh-o-Al-Khaje village, whose rangelands are degraded. The research method is descriptive-analytic and the size of sample was defined 24 rangeland users according to Morgan table. Following a review of literature around resilience, the level of different kinds of resilience of users encountered with rangeland degradation was measured applying questionnaire and SPSS software. It was found out that the average reilience of Hagh-o-Al-Khaje rangeland users was 2. 21, which is lower than average and indicates an unpleasent condition. It was as well found that human indicators had the most impact on resilience (impact factor, 0. 662), but physical indicators had the least impact upon resilience (impact factor, 0. 108). It can therefore be said that users were in good state regarding human indicators but not in the case of physical indicators. Needless to say, planning and resource allocation strategies must pay due attention to improving the resilience of Hagh-o-Al-Khaje rangeland users.
