The Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool (IBAT) provides key decision-makers with access to critical information on biodiversity priority sites to inform decision-making processes and address any potential biodiversity impacts. Developed through a partnership of global conservation leaders including BirdLife International, Conservation International (CI), the United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the vision of IBAT is that decisions affecting critical natural habitats are informed by the best scientific information and in turn decision makers will support the quest to collect and enhance the underlying datasets and maintain that scientific information. To accomplish this, the IBAT alliance is developing a set of web-based decision support systems that provide easy access to site-scale conservation priorities to inform project screening/planning for several target audiences.
