I am looking for a shapefile of the remaining forest cover in Paraguay. I am struggling to find an up to date file. Is there anywhere that has this information open access?

The University of Maryland hosts a regularly updated, very high-resolution (30m) inventory of global forests globally. It specifically tracks forest loss from year 2000 but total coverage is also available.
