Community Development in Sabah - KAS Malaysia
As an alternative to the needs-based approach, Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) is increasingly recognised as an effective approach in community development. ABCD shifts the focus of community development from “problem solving’ to “asset building”. It is community-driven development rather than development driven by external organisations.
