Abstract

Traditional approaches to community development that define communities in solely geographic terms have severe limitations. These traditional approaches have failed to deliver on key social capital improvements such as improving trust between residents or fostering a greater sense of belonging. Our report argues for a new approach to community development – one that focuses on assets and recognizes the importance of social networks.
