The main source of periodic information on deforestation and land use change in the region comes from the national GeoBosques platform of the Ministry of the Environment. However, based on this platform, the Government of San Martin through the Regional Environmental Authority, reports deforestation (early warnings) to develop monitoring and control activities.
