Abstract: This poster was presented by Practical Action at the American Geophysics Union 2018. The session on Building Resilience to Natural Hazards by Utilizing Citizen Science and Understanding Compound Hazards, was convened by Landslide EVO. The poster presents the concept of citizen science and participatory tools/methodologies that are being put into practice for flood risk reduction, local disaster governance, and wider resilience building in Nepal. Showcasing Practical Action’s long history on community based flood EWS in Nepal, it describes how a system can be made participatory, in a way that balances top-down/techno-centric and bottom-up/people-centered approaches.
