Hi, thank you so much for the response. It would be helpful for us if you can give us the data per region in the country but if this is not possible, overall data on the national level will do. Thank you again!

Dear Renz Ladroma,

May we further clarify on the request for data on growth rate. Will this refer to the increase in volume? or height of the trees within mangrove, open and closed forest types?

Thank you.
