Egypt / Sudan Red Sea coast (winter breeding - January)
FAO CRC/EMPRES in collaboration with the Governments of Egypt and Sudan organizes joint surveys along the common border to check the winter breeding areas of the Desert Locust on the Red Sea coastal plains and interior areas. Results are used to determine the seriousness of the situation in these remote areas and to plan for the upcoming summer operations. The first survey was organized in 2000. It is hoped that this can become an annual activity between the two countries.
