Dear DENR,

Good day! May I request for data on environmental impact (qualitative and quantitative) by the 2020 Taal eruption as of present? If possible, I would like to request for a breakdown of its effects on various sectors such  (forests, bodies of water, etc.)

I would also like to ask if there is an action plan for the recovery after the eruption, and financing needs if available.

If there is already official data available online, i would like to request for a link. Let me know if you need more details. Thank you!
