Comment:
**Since the most recently available information is from 1995,
projecting this to 1999 is difficult at best.
A nominal one percent per
year increase over four years of the growth rate is given for 1999.
For
example, if the forest cover loss rate is 10 in 1995, the 1999 figure
would be 9.6%.
If current data reporting remains the same, actual 1999
figures would not be available until 2003.
***Information for indicators (b) and (c) are not readily available for
inclusion in the FY 1999 Performance Plan.
