Drones for locust early warning & preventive control The rapidly emerging drone technology may offer potential efficiencies and benefits for locust early warning and preventive control. DLIS is actively investigating this new technology with a variety of partners.
Early warning success There are several basic components that are required for any early warning system to be effective and reliable
Desert Locust Information Officer workshops DLIS conducts an annual inter-regional workshop that brings together national locust information officers from English-speaking countries in the Central and South-west Asia regions and regional locust organizations. The workshop is a forum for informal discussions, problem-solving and improvements in data management and early warning, involving the use of new technologies such as eLocust2, eLocust2Mapper, RAMSES, MODIS and greenness maps.
