The purpose of the FAP, administered by the ESIF as of 2018, is to support the long-term financing of the operating expenses required for the protection of biodiversity housed in protected areas. This equity fund generates returns destined to finance the basic operating expenses for the execution of management plans of the Protected Areas (PA), obtaining in 2020 a return of approximately 3 million.

In addition, since 2020, the Ecuador Azul Program has been executed, whose pilot plan supports 5 coastal marine areas; these additional resources are directed to monitoring, training and equipment.
