General Situation during May 2004

Forecast until mid-July 2004

The Desert Locust situation is very worrying despite intensive control operations carried out in Northwest Africa during May. So far in 2004, more hectares have been treated than in any year since the last plague of 1987-89. Nevertheless, a significant redistribution of populations is expected to occur in June as swarms that form in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya move south and invade Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad and perhaps western Sudan.
