Citizen science for hydrological risk reduction and resilience building
Number of pages
This paper explores the challenges and opportunities of citizen science within a broader context of disaster risk management and resilience. The paper reviews the state-of-the-art of citizen science within the context of hydrological risk reduction and resilience building.
Particularly when embedded within a polycentric approach toward risk governance, it argues that citizen science could complement more traditional knowledge generation practices, and also enhance innovation, adaptation, multidirectional information provision, risk management, and local resilience building.
