IBAT Country Profiles

Resource Type: 

The IBAT Country Profile tool can be reached through the IBAT for Research and Conservation Planning portal ( It delivers nationally relevant data that are disaggregated from global datasets, to support conservation planning and reporting. It presents information on species from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™, Protected Areas from the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) and on Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) from the World Database of Key Biodiversity Areas managed by BirdLife International on behalf of the KBA Partnership. More information on these datasets can be found here. IBAT Country Profiles can be viewed online and are downloadable reports, which are designed to aid national decision-making. More specifically, this tool presents a synthesis of a vast repository of knowledge to understand species extinction risk and threats, Protected Area coverage and designation, and the location of KBAs and the degree to which they are covered by Protected Areas.
