Emergency Transboundary Outbreak Pest (ETOP) Situation Report for May with a Forecast till Mid-July, 2014

Summary

During May, several Desert Locust (SGR1) swarms from northwestern Somalia invaded eastern Ethiopia. On May 14th, an immature swarm dominated the sky over the city of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (see picture below). This is an extremely rare phenomenon that has not been in more than half a century. The swarm is believed to have escaped from eastern Ethiopia passing through the Rift Valley and crossing Awash where it destroyed a sugarcane plantation. No damage was reported in Addis and the swarm was later seen heading northwest and reached Gojjam.

Oxfam’s vision is of a just world without poverty and suffering. If people are empowered to help themselves, and to help others in their communities, a chain reaction of change can be set in motion. Oxfam calls this lifting lives for good. To spread that change and make it last, political solutions are needed to tackle the root causes of poverty and create societies where empowered individuals can thrive.
