Innovative Protected Areas Financing and Resourcing Solutions- Lessons from the 2018 Pathfinder Award Winners (Dec 2018)
The 2018 Pathfinder Award for innovation in nature conservation focused on identifying and celebrating solutions from around the world that have addressed the problem of Insufficient investment of finance and other resources in protected areas. In this webinar, the award winners introduced their ground breaking innovations and discuss with the audience what made their approaches successful. Learn more about the solutions in the PANORAMA website.

Solutions from European Protected Areas (May 2018)
As a celebration of the European Day of Parks, EUROPARC, PANORAMA Solutions for a Healthy Planet and IUCN co-organised a webinar to showcase best practices from European Protected Areas. The solutions came from the edges of Europe (Azores-Portugal and Armenia), and showed us how nature conservation objectives can be better pursued with the cooperation and engagement of local communities and governmental bodies.
Solutions from natural World Heritage sites (April 2018)
IUCN marked World Heritage Day with a PANORAMA webinar focussing on nature’s iconic treasures. Natural World Heritage sites are internationally recognised as the planet’s most significant protected areas, yet they face increasing threats, as shown by the IUCN World Heritage Outlook 2 launched recently. These sites have the power to mobilise action and often pioneer management solutions contributing to sustainable development needs. Presenters discussed some of the challenges they face and positive approaches they developed to protect natural World Heritage sites.
Speakers include Tim Badman (Director, World Heritage Programme, IUCN), Dr. Susan Otuokon (Executive Director, Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust) - Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, Jamaica, Gerold Lüerßen (Luerssen - Deputy Executive Secretary, Trilateral Monitoring and Assessment) - Wadden Sea World Heritage, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands / Banc d'Arguin National Park, Mauritania, and Cheryl Sanchez (Aldabra Science Coordinator, Seychelles Islands Foundation) - Aldabra Atoll, Seychelles. The webinar was co-hosted by the IUCN Global Protected Areas Programme and IUCN World Heritage Programme.
Soluciones sobre lecciones aprendidas en la gestión de Áreas Protegidas Amazónicas (October 2017)

The webinar was held in Spanish.
This webinar was co-hosted by IUCN's Global Protected Areas Programme and the IUCN Regional Office for South America (SUR).
Scaling up community-led MPA management, hosted by Blue Solutions (June 2017)
The webinar was presented by Alifereti Tawake (LMMA Network International) - Keynote remarks, George Manahira and Charlie Gough (Blue Ventures) - "Kick-starting marine conservation through local fisheries management" (Madagascar) and Laure Katz (Conservation International) - "Community-based Conservation at Scale" (Indonesia).
Blue Solutions provides a global knowledge network and capacity development platform to collate, share, and generate solutions for effective management and equitable governance of our planet’s marine and coastal living spaces, and to develop capacity for the ocean community on the initiative’s priority topics. For this webinar, presenters showcased two examples of “Blue Solutions” case studies for scaling community-led marine protected area management, explained what made them successful and discussed with the audience.
Gender mainstreaming solutions for protected areas (March 2017)
This PANORAMA webinar showcases gender mainstreaming solutions for protected areas. These solutions demonstrate how women’s participation and inclusion in protected area management and governance contributes to biodiversity conservation, sustainable development and peace-building. Presenters from a range of countries introduced their solutions, explained what made them successful and discussed with the audience.
The webinar was co-hosted by IUCN's Global Protected Areas Programme and the IUCN Global Gender Office, with opening remarks from Lorena Aguilar, Global Senior Gender Adviser at IUCN.
Transboundary protected area solutions for sustainability and peace (December 2016)
This PANORAMA webinar showcases transboundary protected area solutions contributing to biodiversity conservation, sustainable social and economic development, and peace-building. Presenters from a range of countries introduce their solutions in the Middle East, Jordan, Israel, Slovenia, and Italy, and explain what made them successful. The webinar is hosted by IUCN's Global Protected Areas Programme.

Island solutions (August 2016)
The 5th PANORAMA webinar showcased island leadership and solutions in oceans and coastal resilience contributing to sustainability in the lead up to the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Hawaii. The Micronesia Challenge, the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund and Hawai’i Green Growth/the Aloha+ Challenge served as examples of how political commitment and cross-sectoral partnerships can be leveraged to build sustainable financing mechanisms for a conservation and sustainable development agenda. The webinar was co-hosted by Blue Solutions (through IUCN) and GLISPA.
A profound connection with nature is made at an early age, therefore it is crucial to foster that connection in children and youth. At the same time, emerging young conservation leaders are creating positive impacts in many protected areas around the world, working in partnership with park agencies, communities and other groups. Learn more about young people being engaged in protected areas through this webinar, which showcases three inspiring solutions from the PANORAMA case study portfolio.
The tourism business plays a major role in sustaining the global network of protected areas. At the same time, half of all international travellers visit a protected area during their trip. However, the advocates of natural spaces often are concerned about the potential impacts of unsustainable tourism - but when done right, tourism and conservation can greatly benefit from each other.
Presenters from a range of countries introduced their PANORAMA case studies in the webinars, explaining what made them successful and discussed with the audience. The webinars were co-hosted by the IUCN Global Protected Areas Programme and the WCPA Tourism Specialist Group.
