The Ecuadorian proposal to keep million barrels of crude oil in the Yasuní National Park underground—for the purposes of avoiding CO2 emissions and to protect both the biological diversity and the indigenous peoples in isolation who inhabit this area of the Amazon—is evaluated from a “multi-criteria” analysis.

This book speaks directly to this question and to the different ways in which Latin American countries are responding to the challenge of extractive industry. The contributors are a mixture of geographers, economists, political scientists, development experts and anthropologists, who all draw on sustained field work in the region.

Last year, the NI got involved with the campaign to save the Yasuní rainforest – a remarkably biodiverse area of the pristine Ecuadorian Amazon that is perilously perched atop million barrels of oil.
