Asset Based Community Development

ABCD is a methodology for the sustainable development of communities based on their strengths and potentials.”

ABCD is built on four foundations.

  • It focuses on community assets and strengths rather than problems and needs.
  • It identifies and mobilises individual and community assets, skills and passions.
  • It is community driven – ‘building communities from inside out’.
  • It is relationship driven.
