Ecuador Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini Yasaní

The Yasuní National Park in Ecuador is generally considered to be one of the richest biodiversity ‘hot spots’ in the world. It is also rich in natural resources, including oil. In 2007 Ecuador proposed a plan for a form of national scale PES, under which it would stop oil exploitation in the region if sufficient funds could be raised to compensate for lost oil revenues.
