Abstract:

A number of new technologies have been introduced by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and adopted for use by countries affected by the Desert Locust (Schistocerca gregaria). This paper describes how field teams, decision makers, and analysts use these technologies to record, transmit and manage survey and control data, to monitor ecological conditions and to forecast locust breeding and migration. The regular and rational use of such technologies has led to better early warning and prevention of Desert Locust plagues.
