Ecuador promoted the Yasuni-ITT in the Rio +20 Summit, and got the offer of a new monetary contribution.
Rafael Correa urged the environmental project at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development as an alternative to preserve the environment.
The Yasuni-ITT is part of Ecuador’s commitment to indefinitely maintain intact the underground oil reserves in Yasuni National Park, the most biodiverse place on the planet.
This initiative is born by the need to conserve biodiversity and a minimum of respect for the people living in voluntary isolation.
The Rio +20 summit began yesterday and ends tomorrow. It has brought together representatives from 193 countries including 86 heads of state, diplomats, activists and others. (MZ)
