Description

From the Wikipedia:

"The Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) is a methodology that seeks to uncover and highlight the strengths within communities as a means for sustainable development. The basic tenet is that a capacities-focused approach is more likely to empower the community and therefore mobilize citizens to create positive and meaningful change from within. Instead of focusing on a community's needs, deficiencies and problems, the ABCD approach helps them become stronger and more self-reliant by discovering, mapping and mobilizing all their local assets." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asset_Based_Community_Development)

Asset Based Community Development as a P2P Approach

Asset-Based Community Development, like Solidarity Economics, starts with the Peers in a network. By examining Peer Assets like skills, the network or peers works together to accomplish something that the is needed by the network. Asset-based community development (ABCD), as a term, gets used a lot to refer to Grassroots projects, or any situation where folks engage self-reliance to overcome a hurdle. This is a fine use of the term, in most cases, but ABCD is a robust process that aims to continually involve peers in the solution-making process over an extended period of time. Indeed, ABCD, as a process, builds a culture of affirmation that goes right along with mutual trust and respect.
