This theme advances innovative nature-based coastal and marine climate solutions.
The world is facing numerous environmental and conservation crises across communities. In addressing these issues, it is vital that organizations work together to promote solutions and exchange ideas. PANORAMA is a global 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. The online platform allows organizations and communities from across the globe to share their solutions, inspire action, and assists in scaling up their solutions.
PANORAMA is divided into 10 communities, which are each coordinated by one or more of PANORAMA’s 12 partners. GRID-Arendal is providing communications support for the organisation, and is a key coordinator for the PANORAMA Blue community along with GIZ, IUCN, UNEP, and OCTO.
As of 2022, there are over 1000 solutions on the platform, from 790 Solution Providers.
The Blue Solutions Initiative develops capacity and supports knowledge exchange on successful approaches to marine and coastal management.
Maps of seafloor habitats are important predictors of biodiversity and a key input into marine spatial planning
