The National Guard of Mauritania

The National Guard of Mauritania cooperate closely with the National Locust Control Centre. Much of their work involves patrolling (usually by camel) remote desert areas. They have been trained by the CLAA in locust survey techniques, and are able to report to the CLAA the presence of locusts and vegetation in areas not covered by the CLAA's own survey teams. When control operations are taking place, the CLAA can call on the resources of the National Guard as necessary.

This working relationship is formalised in an official Letter of Agreement between the CLAA and the National Guard.
