Good day!

Yes, I am kindly requesting for Data on Forest Cover, from all provinces in the country, in the latest year available (after 2015). This is due to academic and research purposes for my course in Digital and Data Journalism as a third-year AB Communication Arts Student at De La Salle University-Manila.

In order for us to work further on your request, we would like to inform you that data on forest cover is officially generated by the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority every 5 years. However, since the data on forest cover for 2020 is not yet officially communicated to our Office, the data that we can provide is the 2015 forest cover. Should you still be willing to receive this data, you may use the reply function on the eFOI portal at https://pcoomaster11222017130000-dot-efoi-ph.appspot.com/requests/aglzfmVmb2ktcGhyIQsSB0NvbnRlbnQiFERFTlJGTUItMTg1MjY0NzU2ODA1DA, for request with ticket number #DENRFMB-185264756805, to respond.

During the period of us awaiting your reply, your request will be put on hold. If we do not receive a reply on or before Jul 12, 2022 06:38:12 AM, your request will be closed.

We hope to hear from you at the soonest possible time.

Thank you.
