The research explores how community science can be used as a tool for building resilience to disaster events. It presents a framework for hazard scientists and practitioners to use if they want to build more citizen participation into their research design. It also highlights how different types of hazard research projects are already utilising citizen engagement in data collection and analysis. A thematic analysis of literature was undertaken on both citizen science and community resilience as concepts. Comparisons were made between citizen science project design themes and three community resilience enablers; informal disaster education, community participation, and trust.
