Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) is a strategy for sustainable community-driven development. The appeal of ABCD for planners lies in its premise that planners can facilitate communities to drive the development process themselves by identifying and mobilizing existing, but often unrecognized assets, and thereby responding to and creating local opportunities. The six assets we will discuss are (1) individuals, (2) associations, (3) institutions, (4) physical space, (5) exchange and economy, (6) culture, history, and stories. The key is for planners to begin to use what is already in the community.
