Citizen science is on the increase. Using their own observations and mobile devices, citizens can provide a new data stream of local information about their environment, complementing existing systems and data sources.

Ground Truth 2.0 is a 3-year EC funded project that is setting up and validating six citizen observatories in real conditions, in four European and two African demonstration cases. The project is demonstrating that such observatories are technologically feasible, can be implemented sustainably and that they have many societal and economic benefits. The ultimate objective is the global market uptake of the concept and the enabling technologies.

Upande is one of the project partners in the Kenyan case study, alongside IHE, TAHMO and Gavagai.

The Kenyan case is integrating exiting tools present among the various stakeholders in the Masaai-Mara ecosystem that deal with biodiversity and livelihood in general.
