This chapter examines how citizen science can contribute to community resilience in situations of human vulnerability within the context of civic ecology. Drawing from the disaster, conflict, natural resource management, and resilience literatures, and from examples of participatory data collection linked with environmental restoration in postcrisis settings, the chapter considers how we might integrate concepts from citizen science with scholarship and practice aimed at fostering community capacity to buffer the impacts of disasters and conflicts. It argues that citizen science can play an important role in conflict management and disaster recovery, in part by accumulating multiple forms of knowledge and data collection over broad geographic areas.

Keywords:   citizen science, community resilience, civic ecology, natural resource management, data collection, environmental restoration, conflict management, disaster recovery
