Sharing and acknowledging solutions in the fight against global climate change and biodiversity loss is a crucial step in promoting and sustaining the work of organisations. Knowledge platforms are a powerdful tool in this regard. Moreover, they also offer the opportunity to exchange with experts and practitioners in the region so that synergies and networks can be created.
On 17 February 2022, the IKI Small Grants Webinar on Knowledge Platforms tackling climate change and biodiversity loss took place. Over 60 organisations participated. The webinar addressed the topic of sharing and enhancing the visibility of project results, experiences as well as tested solutions. IKI Small Grants was able to engage experts from PANORAMA and weADAPT , who not only presented their platforms and communities but also provided valuable input on knowledge management.
PANORAMA is a partnership initiative to document and promote examples of inspiring, replicable solutions across a range of conservation and sustainable development topics. WeADAPT provides an open forum on climate adaptation issues, enabling practitioners, researchers and policy-makers to access credible, high-quality information and share experiences as well as lessons learned.
Additionally, the video of IKI Small Grants’ latest webinar shares hints on finding suitable online platforms for climate and biodiversity actions and presents how to use and contribute to them. In this context, the current UN Decades as well as the Global Resilience Partnership were also raised as significant references.
