Event title: Scaling, not failing: Building on Existing Solutions for a Health Planet through PANORAMA

Venue: Virtual Only

8:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Building on the wealth of existing local, national and regional solutions will be crucial for conserving biodiversity in the face of mounting pressures. PANORAMA is a global initiative that identifies and celebrates existing examples of success stories from a wide range of contributors, identifying their key success factors in a structured format. PANORAMA covers topics ranging from agriculture and biodiversity, marine and coastal, ecosystem-based adaptation, protected area management to Business engagement in conservation, ultimately supporting the replication of these solutions. In this interactive session, participants will be exposed to a number of “flagship solutions” from PANORAMA, from different countries. In groups, they will explore the potential of these solutions to be applied more widely. Jointly with the PANORAMA team, they will commit to specific actions leading to uptake of solutions.
