Asset Based Community-Driven Development (ABCD)

Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS)
                                            27 – 31 October 2014 | ABCD: The Fundamentals

A certified training co-hosted by

The Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), University of Pretoria, South Africa & The Coady International Institute, St Francis Xavier University, Canada

** 29 September – Deadline for Early Bird Rate! **

The last few years has seen a wave of momentum around the asset-based approach to stimulating social and economic change in South African communities.   
 
This international certificate programme is an opportunity to learn principles, tools, and case studies to shift your organisation’s focus – from community needs and problems to one that understands and recognises the assets, strengths and opportunities within that community.
What is ABCD?  
 

Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) is an approach that focuses on the resources and strengths of communities, rather than needs and deficiencies.  

The Coady Institute is an international leader in ABCD, and its frameworks and tools are widely used to help communities mobilise and build on their assets for sustainable development.  
 

By the end of this five-day course participants will be able to:
  • Understand the core principles that differentiate citizen-driven development;
  • Adapt and apply tools for communities to identify and mobilise their own assets;
  • Identify ways in which the principles and tools of asset-based and citizen-driven development can be applied in your communities or organisations.
