ABCs of Asset-Based Community Development

Commitment by

Foundation for Sustainable Development

In 2011, Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD) committed to train its 300 NGO partners at 11 program sites in Africa, Latin America, and India on Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). ABCD facilitates the process of identifying and allocating local assets and resources, leveraging existing networks, capitalizing community and individual strengths, and measuring and documenting results. FSD will apply a training-of-trainers approach using five local NGO leaders at each site. As a criterion for participation, NGO partners must implement the ABCD approach in at least one program in their community within three months of the initial training. FSD will evaluate the trainings, offer additional trainings, and provide one-on-one support as needed.
