Participatory water resource management

A para-hydrology initiative in two regions of Ethiopia trained citizen scientists to collect quantitative data on rural hydrological systems. The study has demonstrated the reliability of the data gathered by local citizen scientists. The data has been successfully used in several peer-reviewed studies to predict and assess the impact of sustainable land management interventions.
