MMfD Comments:

MMfD had filed three information requests with the forest department about records related to forest area and afforestation schemes. Only three divisional forest officers from one forest region in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa responded to some questions from the three requests. (KP apparently has 41 divisional forest officers.) The responses were clubbed together so only the cover letters have been attached below. MMfD has made the data from these responses available in the data section of our website.
