Asset Based Community Development Resource

Asset Based Community Development Resource | International Association for Community Development.

Although the ABCD approach is well-developed internationally and its core values well understood by practitioners in the UK and Ireland, there has been little explicit application of the approach in community development policy and practice. The purpose of this work therefore is to help inform future asset based community development initiatives in the UK.

The report outlines a range of international perspectives from the literature, predominantly that which is published in English. It explores the ways in which the work has developed and some problematic areas and critical voices as well. There are preliminary lessons to be learnt from this experience for those wishing to incorporate an ABCD approach in the UK and Ireland.
