Deliverable D4.5 provides a description and evaluation of the findings on the impact of citizen science in the case study sites. The MICS impact assessment approach was applied to the five MICS case study sites across Europe, each of which have differing levels of citizen science engagement and approaches to environmental management. The case study are:

(i) Outfall Safari (UK): aims to use citizen science to detect and record pollution from surface water outfalls to gather evidence and report on pollution incidents;

(ii) Riverfly Monitoring (UK): aims to monitor key macroinvertebrate species (riverflies) that are indicators of river water quality;

(iii) Marzenego River NBS Project (Italy): aims to establish a monitoring program to gauge the effectives of NBS implemented within the Marzenego River catchment;

(iv) The Creek Rákos Citizen Science project (Hungary): aims to use citizen science as a means of establishing the baseline condition of the Creek to identify suitable sites for restoration and promote public support for NBS; and,

(v) The Carasuhat Wetland NBS Project (Romania): aims to establish a monitoring programme to gauge the effectives of wetland NBS implemented in the Danube Delta.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824711.
