The book illustrates the benefits of citizen science, a diverse set of participatory practices by which individuals contribute their knowledge to scientific and policy processes. Collating citizen science case studies and perspectives across various policy domains, it shows how making use of citizen science can lead to more effective and inclusive decision-making. The book also begins to chart the way forward for governments to integrate citizen science practices into public policy.
