With ATRAP, HARISSAD-SIRE and SWAMP, different academic partners from Uganda and Belgium collaborate on developing citizen science networks for data-collection on a variety of environmental risks. Beyond the goal to use citizen-generated data for their respective research questions, the projects will join forces to explore the potential of citizen scientists networks for communication and capacity-building in West and South-West-Uganda. Citizen Science networks for in-field data-collection on this scale, in thess context are rare and building-up this critical mass would not be possible without our partners, supporting institutions and of course, the citizen scientists.
