France to back effort to stop deforestation in Ecuador's Yasuní NP

France has rolled out a new initiative to fight deforestation and promote sustainable development.

Under the initiative, announced in Ecuador in early December 2020, the South American country will be the first regional beneficiary of the related pilot project, dubbed TerrAmaz. The overall initiative is backed by $11.48 million in funding to be divided between Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, with support from the French Development Agency (AFD).
