Examples of Citizen science /Crowdsourcing applications and services in support of the WFD wanted!

The Norwegian Institute of Water Research (NIVA) has been commissioned by the Norwegian Environment Agency to conduct a small study in 2019 examining the feasibility of using citizen science and / or crowdsourcing in support of Water Framework Directive work onwards in Norway.

A part of the study is to collect international examples, “good and less good”, to describe what has been tested and/or used elsewhere, whether as web services or smartphone apps or both, with success or without success. We seek both the more natural science oriented applications, and the applications that are more oriented towards viewpoint/opinions, eg proposals for measures.

Also services and applications directly targeting the official public consultation process is wanted. The survey will take less than a minute to complete!
