Data on forest cover is essential for effective forest management and conservation. It enables policymakers to make informed decisions about forest management, such as identifying conservation areas, tracking changes in forest cover, and identifying areas at risk of deforestation. The forest cover profile page contains information, statistics, and datasets on forest cover from 1973 to 2014 produced by ODC, as well as forest cover from 2015 to the present imported from SERVIR Southeast Asia.
