Desert Locust threat in the Sahel may worsen the state of food insecurity if Regional approach is not adopted..

Desert Locust threat in the Sahel (June-December 2012)

“2012 THREAT. From May onwards, the Sahel in West Africa faced the most serious Desert Locust threat since 2005. More than 50 million people could be affected in Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger. …Without the assistance and control, migration would have occurred on a much larger scale…. If good rains fall, locust numbers will increase and small swarms could form that, unless controlled, could move back to the Sahel in about June 2013…” FAO
