Community Capital Lab

Several Pando members have joined a new entity called the Community Capital Lab.  

Community Capital is a framework that helps us avoid false trade-offs, and that helps us identify those sweet spots where a single initiative can have multiple co-benefits. Community Capital is a way of thinking about community planning and development based on several mutually-reinforcing forms of capital. Community Capital may include natural, physical, economic/financial, human, social, cultural, and/or political forms of capital.

The Community Capital Lab, under the direction of Pando founder Dr. Mark Roseland, conducts research and develops tools and applications. We work with communities, governments, foundations, businesses, and civil society to advance an integrated holistic approach to dialogue, decision-making, monitoring and assessment. Based at Arizona State University, we are pleased to work with researcher and practitioner partners across the country and around the world.
