Table 2 Annual area of small-scale forest clearing for agriculture in primary and mature secondary dense HTFs and primary woodlands and dry forests (thousand hectares ± SE) by 5-year epochs.

Forest clearing for small-scale rotational agriculture includes clearing for charcoal production, the contribution of which does not exceed 10% of the class area (42). EQG had only 20 sampled pixels identified as forest loss, and this small sample size did not yield adequately precise estimated annual loss rates by 5-year epochs.
