Authors: Julián Mora Aliseda, Jacinto Garrido Velarde, René Bedón Garzón
Abstract: The National Park are unique spaces for the study and monitoring of a resilient development. This interest is especially because the natural harbour protected areas, social components and ecological processes, subject to social and economic changes, which follow from these protected areas, have an intrinsic and comparative interest. To guide the scope and content of the resilient development requires the identification of a number of relevant environmental, social and economic indicators to develop a system of evaluation and monitoring, it is intended to determine the degree of deviation of the values of the indicators of reference values initially determined. The objective of this research proposal is to design and functioning of an Indicator System Resilience in the National Parks in general and in the Yasuní National Park in particular, that responds to the need to have a sufficient set of data capable of monitoring the short, medium and long term the persistence of protected area against changes or environmental impacts.
