Difference between Asset Mapping and ABCD

Slide27

Definition of Asset Mapping

"

Asset Mapping

" is derived from an "asset-based" approach to community development, and refers to a range of approaches that work from the principle that a community can be built only by focusing on the strengths and capacities of the citizens and associations that call a neighborhood, community or county "home".

Slide28

Asset Based CD model

The Asset Based CD model says – we are citizens (someone that contributes to the community)

We can all make a contribution

Community can take pride in itself

Local relationships are important and improved

We are the answer

We are equal with others – we work together

Slide29

ABCD

“Asset based community development is a powerful approach focused on discovering and

mobilising

the resources that are already present in a community.  It provides a way for citizens to find and

mobilise

what they have in order to build a stronger community” (Green, Moore, & O’Brien, 2006)
