Locust plague in Madagascar
A locust plague is threatening the livelihoods of 13 million people in Madagascar, nine million of whom earn a living from agriculture. Locust infestations, if untreated, could wipe out food crops and livestock grazing lands – and with it a family’s ability to provide for itself.
With sufficient funding, FAO, together with the national authorities, will be able to carry out the requested large-scale aerial operations to treat and protect 1.5 million hectares from September 2013 to mid-2014 – and a total of 2.15 million hectares from 2013 until 2016.
