This chapter discusses a project known by its Spanish acronym, EISA, aimed at developing an ecosystem‐based ecological and social impact monitoring system for oil exploration activities in what is known as Block 78, a rain forest area of 1.5 million hectares superimposed on the ecosystem of the Tambopata‐Candamo Reserved Zone.
