Spanish term or phrase:que pueden ver mermadas sus expectativas
• Problemas con las comunidades derivados también de la reducción del precio del cobre, *que pueden ver mermadas sus expectativas* y convertirlas en reclamos sociales mal direccionados y sin conocimiento contra la operación.
Explanation: I agree with Deborah regarding "forced," conveying the idea of obligation (which might be necessary for the sentence to sound natural). Since almost everyone seems to agree that the "expectations" are those of the community, turning the phrase around may be the best way to approach this.
