On Aug. 3, the Ecuadoran government and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) signed a trust agreement to administer the financial resources with which the international community will support the Initiativa Yasuní. In this initiative, the government has committed to leave in the ground existing oil reserves in this area of the Ecuadoran Amazon. Nevertheless, "Plan B"--to extract the oil--is moving forward more quickly, despite the agreements.
