IUCN’s Request for Proposals (RfP) Redesign of PANORAMA.solutions

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature has opened up a request for proposal on the redesign of the PANORAMA web platform, panorama.solutions

PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet is a partnership initiative, which identifies and promotes examples of tested and replicable “solutions” and enables their wider application through offering cross- sectoral global exchange opportunities, thus facilitating learning from successful practice in biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. PANORAMA promotes solutions that demonstrate how well-protected biodiversity and well-managed ecosystems help address societal challenges and thereby achieve development benefits.

PANORAMA is a joint initiative of IUCN, the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Environment Programme, GRID-Arendal, Rare, IFOAM Organics International, the World Bank Group, ICOMOS, ICCROM, OCTO Group and EcoHealth Alliance with support from the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, (BMUV), the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment and the Global Environment Facility. PANORAMA contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, the post-2020 Global

Biodiversity Framework and the climate change adaptation and mitigation goals as defined under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement.

The function of the PANORAMA Secretariat is currently provided by IUCN and GIZ, which have each appointed staff to ensure the strategic advancement, coordination and administration of the initiative. PANORAMA is structured into so-called Communities, i.e. thematic chapters. Each Community is coordinated by staff of one or several of the PANORAMA partner organizations.

The PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet web platform was launched in September 2016 during the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Hawai’i. The PANORAMA.solutions platform is the world’s leading online database and digital interface dedicated to unearthing proven solutions that work for nature and people across sectors. The PANORAMA web platform is a key tool for the initiative, as it serves both as the database of solution case studies, which are the substance of PANORAMA; and it also acts as the website for the initiative itself. The Secretariat oversees the development and management of the PANORAMA web platform. It

currently features around 1,200 detailed solutions.
