Thematic Communities

PANORAMA promotes solutions across multiple, inter-linked thematic communities. Each thematic community is coordinated by one or several PANORAMA partner organizations. Find out more below, and delve into the solution examples of each thematic community.

Protected areas

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.

Marine and coastal

The sustainable use and conservation of marine and coastal biodiversity is a priority for action under the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011–2020 of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). To support practitioners and policy makers in improving the management of marine and coastal biodiversity, the Blue Solutions Initiative is partnering with a range of organizations and programmes, including the Sustainable Ocean Initiative (SOI) of the CBD, to facilitate global knowledge exchange and capacity development.

Sustainable agriculture

Agriculture and biodiversity

Unsustainable agricultural practices remain one of the greatest threats to ecosystems and biodiversity. As the world population grows and climate change continues to threaten livelihoods, we have to find agricultural production methods that support farmers and the environment we all rely on.

Business engagement

Business activities are an important driver for the loss of biodiversity, but business also depend on nature and the goods and services it provides to operate. Therefore, business has a responsibility to adopt good practices to reduce their environmental footprint and promote the sustainable use of resources, as well as to contribute to the conservation of biodiversity.
