Global Asset Building

The Center for Social Development and the New America Foundation’s Asset Building Program launched the Global Assets Project in July 2006 to inform and promote development of asset-building policies and programs worldwide. This coordinated initiative sought to build on successes of domestic asset-building programs to an international level by informing new policies, testing their effectiveness, creating networks of scholars and policymakers, building the global knowledge base, and promoting  information sharing.
