IUCN Launches Web Portal to Showcase Inspiring Protected Area Solutions

Friday, March 27, 2015 @ 12:03 AM

In November 2014, IUCN, with support from the Global Environment Facility, and with partners such as Blue Solutions, WCPA, Coalition Wild, RARE and UNDP, established Panorama, a platform for collating protected area case studies that showcase how protected areas provide solutions to some of the world’s challenges. The Panorama allows practitioners to share their stories and to learn about how others have tackled problems related to protected areas across the globe. The stated “goal is to transform the way that we view solutions: not as fixed, context-specific proof-points, but instead as successes that can be leveraged to inspire and catalyse progress that transcends geography, issue, and scale”.

The web portal is in the trial phase, where the process and format for assembling and documenting protected area solutions are tested. The initial portfolio of solution case studies was launched at the IUCN World Parks Congress in November 2014, together with the first prototype of the online Panorama platform, www.panorama.solutions.
