Somalia Crisis Response Plan (SCRP)

Somalia Crisis Response Plan (SCRP)
Apr 2021

FAO in Somalia is continuously finding innovative ways to respond to and mitigate the desert locust crisis. The eLocust3 app which can be connected to mobile phones to trace and track hopper bands of locusts has helped pave the way for technology to contribute to emergency efforts. With generous funding from the World Bank, FAO and partners implemented activities that are both innovative and tech savvy to help local farmers and agro-pastoralists save their crops from insect infestations and mitigate the effects of desert locusts on communities.
