Online workshop presents citizen-led water quality monitoring

On 18th January 2024 Pavitra Ganga organised a workshop on citizen-led monitoring of water quality together with the AKVO Foundation and the Water Quality Network (INREM Foundation).


When citizens actively engage in data collection and monitoring efforts, they transform from passive recipients of development initiatives into empowered stakeholders and catalysts for change.

In the webinar, we illustrate how citizens can seamlessly integrate into the data-to-decision making process, highlighting the pivotal role digital tools play in this transformation.

Following aspects were addressed:

  • How citizen participation can complement traditional monitoring methods
  • Common challenges and best practices for data use in citizen science projects
  • The key steps for designing and implementing a citizen monitoring system
  • Examples and lessons learned from citizen science projects around the world
