Developing Community Connections with Asset Mapping: Asset Mapping with Connectors

Jana Carp

This resource guide, Asset Mapping with Connectors, unpacks the second step in the Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) process. During the first step, Situation Assessment, you will have started to learn about your community’s strengths that support fire adaptation, as well as its challenges. By learning about these directly from community members, you probably met people who are “connectors.” These guides explain how to invite those connectors to collaborate with you on identifying the community’s fire adaptation strengths more comprehensively in a “mapping” project.

This is part of a series of guides that familiarizes FAC practitioners with the how’s and why’s of the asset-based (rather than deficiency-focused) mapping process. See the Series Overview for an introduction to the overall process; this guide discusses the second step of the seven-part process.
