Contribution of Citizen Science Data to Monitoring the SDGs

Title Contribution of Citizen Science Data to Monitoring the SDGs
Description Recording from a WeObserve session organised in the context of of the conference ‘Knowledge for Change: A decade of Citizen Science (2020-2030) in support of the SDGs‘. This session aimed to demonstrate the value of citizen science data for tracking progress of the SDGs, drawing upon concrete examples that outline the use of citizen science data by NSOs and UN agencies. The challenges and barriers for the uptake of citizen science data for feeding into SDG monitoring processes were discussed, including ways that can bring it into the scope of official statistics through recognition by governments, national statistical offices (NSOs), the UN system, and other data producers and users, from the perspective of the representatives of all these stakeholders.
