  3. 3. Features and Advantages <ul><li>Diversity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Works across a range of communities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Involves more actors </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Effectiveness </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Harnesses more resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Generates more ‘buy-in’ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Goes beyond ‘grant-dependency’ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Innovation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Creates opportunity out of challenge </li></ul></ul>

  5. 5. Study design <ul><li>Need a null hypothesis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To know when it might not work…. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Need to look across Scales </li></ul><ul><ul><li>micro, meso and macro scales </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Study design <ul><li>We look for </li></ul><ul><ul><li>patterns across scales </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Coherance and divergence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Incorporating earlier development models and initiatives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Action – new outputs, new outcomes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Success and Failure </li></ul></ul>

  13. 13. Interim findings: <ul><li>Communities have many more assets than they generally realize </li></ul><ul><li>When communities ‘develop’ them, these assets also become a resource for individual entrepreneurship </li></ul><ul><li>Assets often span generations and community asset approaches often integrates generations otherwise drifting apart </li></ul>
  14. 14. Interim findings: <ul><li>Two fields of community economic development empowered by ABRCD: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Individuals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Using assets to build their own businesses </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Using assets to enhance their own businesses, making them more sustainable </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Social Enterprises </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Material assets such as buildings provide spaces for social enterprises </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>They also often are the nucleus around which local delivery of local services can be structured </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Provisos: <ul><li>Success is dependent upon: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How ‘community’ is defined </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How ‘assets’ are defined </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Communities taking responsibility for their development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Authorities trusting communities to take the responsibility. </li></ul></ul>
