PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet is a partnership initiative to document and promote examples of inspiring, replicable solutions across a range of conservation and sustainable development topics, enabling cross-sectoral learning and inspiration. PANORAMA allows practitioners to share and reflect on their experiences, increase recognition for successful work, and to learn with their peers how similar challenges have been addressed around the globe.
Different thematic disciplines and communities contribute to PANORAMA. On the web platform, these communities are represented through portals like Marine and coastal, Protected areas, Ecosystem-based adaption and Agriculture and Biodiversity.
More than an online platform: The “Solution-ing Approach”
Case studies are documented as solutions using a standard format that identifies replicable "building blocks" (key success factors) and the context in which the solutions were implemented. Solutions are shared on the online platform and through publications. They are also integrated into capacity development activities and workshops. This methodology for learning and innovation is applicable across topics, sectors, and audiences. We have termed this approach of documenting, sharing and supporting the upscaling of successful interventions “the Solution-ing Approach”.
Solutions are specific, applied examples of successful processes or approaches. They can be entire projects or only aspects of a project, and typically encompass several steps or phases of activities. Solutions, while context-specific, are not seen as fixed proof-points, but as toolboxes that can be leveraged and inspire learning across geographies and themes.
