Citizen science and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Peer-reviewed article published in Nature Sustainability on the potential of citizen science to contribute data for monitoring progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The paper grew out of a workshop held at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) from 3 to 5 October 2018 and describes current examples of citizen science data being used for SDG monitoring, potential areas that citizen science projects could contribute, and provides a roadmap to increase the use of citizen science data in areas where more data is needed.
