Start of third locust campaign in Madagascar

Sep 2015

The operations of the third ‒ and last ‒ anti-locust campaign of the three-year programme in response to the locust plague started at the end of August 2015.

The objectives of the anti-locust campaign are to reach a return to a locust recession situation and further strengthen anti-locust management capacities at the national level in Madagascar. It is therefore crucial to carry out aerial and land surveys in order to identify the areas that are still infested by locust populations.
