IBAT is a web-based map and reporting tool that provides fast, easy and integration access to three of the world’s most authoritative global biodiversity datasets: IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, World Database on Protected Areas, and World Database of Key Biodiversity Areas.

It is a partnership among BirdLife International, Conservation International, International Union for Conservation of Nature, and UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre. IBAT helps businesses incorporate biodiversity considerations into key project planning and management decisions, including screening potential investments, siting an operation in a given region, developing action plans to manage for biodiversity impacts, assessing risks associated with potential sourcing regions, and reporting on corporate biodiversity performance. Through an interactive mapping tool, decision-makers are able to easily access and use this up-to-date information to identify biodiversity risks and opportunities within or close to a project boundary. Data are presented in spatial and tabular formats, together with simple mapping functionality. IBAT links to more detailed information and includes on-the-fly reports, option to manage your own catalogue of sites, outputs to support specific user needs and spatial data downloads.
