Welcome to IBAT for the World Bank Group

The IBAT (Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool) for the World Bank Group (WBG) is designed to facilitate screening of critical habitat values by WBG environmental and social specialists.

IBAT for WBG is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the World Bank Group and the IBAT Alliance, including BirdLife International, Conservation International, IUCN and UNEP-WCMC. This collaboration aims to facilitate access by WBG specialists to key conservation data and expertise during implementation of WBG environmental safeguards and performance standards.
