PANORAMA: Solutions for Healthy Planet Project

PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet is a unique example of a bottom-up, multi-actor, cross-sectoral initiative combining a digital platform dedicated to identify and disseminate proven solutions with offline learning and sharing resources and activities (exchange events, trainings, webinars, publications). The current thematic areas include Protected and Conserved Areas, Marine & Coastal, Ecosystem based Adaptation, Agriculture & Biodiversity, Business Engagement, Nature-Culture, Sustainable Urban Development & Resilience, Forest Landscape Restoration and Species Conservation. In that way PANORAMA is promoting replicable solutions and their uptake that demonstrate how well protected biodiversity and well managed ecosystems help address societal challenges, increase resilience and adaptation to climate change and thereby achieve development benefits.
