Hosted by IUCN and UNDP

The protected area solutions portal is hosted by the IUCN Global Protected Areas Programme.


Helping countries and communities designate and manage systems of protected areas on land and in the oceans has been at the core of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s work for decades. The Global Protected Areas Programme, together with the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA), leads these activities.


Through the Panorama, IUCN assembles case studies that showcase how protected areas provide solutions to a multitude of global challenges, such as climate change, food and water security. It also promotes innovative approaches to protected area management and governance itself.


The initial portfolio of protected area solution case studies was launched at the IUCN World Parks Congress (WPC) 2014 in Sydney, together with the first prototype of a Panorama online platform. The Congress was held under the motto “Parks, People, Planet: Inspiring Solutions”, and the Panorama became an integral part of the WPC outcome document, the Promise of Sydney.


The current, new Panorama platform places protected area solutions in a larger pool of solutions from different themes relating to conservation for sustainable development.
