A comprehensive approach focused on sustainable change Asset Building and Community Development, Fourth Edition examines the promise and limits of community development by showing students and practitioners how asset-based developments can improve the sustainability and quality of life. Authors Gary Paul Green and Anna Haines provide an engaging, thought-provoking, and comprehensive approach to asset building by focusing on the role of different forms of community capital in the development process. Updated throughout, this edition explores how communities are building on their key assets—physical, human, social, financial, environmental, political, and cultural capital— to generate positive change. With a focus on community outcomes, the authors illustrate how development controlled by community-based organizations provides a better match between assets and the needs of the community.

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), Looking Back to Look Forward is a prelude to a longer book. It is framed as a conversation between Cormac Russell, who is a leader in the Asset Based Movement in Europe, and Director of ABCD Europe and Professor John McKnight the Co-Director of the ABCD Institute. This book provides a detailed background to Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), with a particular emphasis on the contributions of the people, such as Illich, Alinsky, Mendelsohn, Miller, Snow, Block and others, who have been most influential in shaping the conceptual framework and practice of this approach. It also provides a deep insight into Professor John McKnight’s (one of the originators, and the most central figure in ABCD alongside Professor Jody Kretzmann) thinking on society and community. It offers a wealth of commentary on the challenges facing society and community, what needs to change, and how we might go about it. This publication is therefore a must read for anybody interested in social policy and community development. It will be of particular interest to those seeking to gain a deep, well informed and rounded understanding of Asset Based Community Development from its beginning to the current day.

How to increase community capital or assets in distressed communities and implement sustainable community development solutions is a problem faced by many community development organizations across the country. This report aims to demonstrate how sustainable community development can be achieved using asset-based community development (ABCD) techniques to capitalize on the untapped assets in a community and mobilize its members to implement economic initiatives that both empower its members and sustain the community. Additionally, the report adds to the view that intangible human-centered development impacts, such as, human capital, social capital, leadership and social activism are an important measure of sustainable development. Using a case study approach, it examines how a women-centered community development corporation utilizes the ABCD method to build assets and new economic opportunities for a community of displaced Mexican immigrant women garment workers who pushed out of the workforce after the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in South-Central El Paso, Texas.

Abstract: Many communities in Egypt, specifically the rural areas, are unquestionably distressed places as a result of the major economic and political shifts that have occurred over the past few years. Strategies of community development are currently viewed as the radical remedy for poverty related problems. In Egypt, community development strategies are usually driven from traditional approaches including charity, needs and rights based approaches which focus on basic needs like shelters and food. These approaches have proved a deficiency as they ignore the structural causes of poverty and address symptoms only. In response to these shortages came an alternative capacity focused practice called Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) approach. The case in this research is that ABCD could offer a coherent strategy of sustainable development in poor communities in Egypt. Based on that, the main objectives of the research is to study the application of ABCD approach in rural areas, and in turn present a customized ABCD approach derived from the international guidelines and the Egyptian experience. In order to fulfill these objectives, case studies from the rural communities in Egypt that adopts ABCD approach were extensively studied mostly through qualitative research methods. The analysis and the findings of the current research are most relevant to developing countries and to those emerging from state capitalism and centralization. The results of the research give substantial contribution in understanding and identifying the ABCD approach. Thus, a possible way is paved to generalize this bottom up development strategy over poor communities.

Payne has written a comprehensive study of the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a local youth violence prevention project in Riverside, California. We know local governments are accountable for the effective management of tax funds. As such, the proper planning and implementation of long-term youth violence prevention efforts takes on added significance. This project represents the first effort on the part of the City of Riverside, California to implement a preventive model based on social disorganization theory. The basic premise of the model combines long-term and short-term goals. That is, increased social capital for youths and collective efficacy among adults in the community combined with acute intervention and suppression efforts help to mitigate the risks associated with youth violence. It is hoped that this analysis may serve to inform other local governments on the most effective strategy in the prevention of youth violence.
