The Desert Locust situation deteriorated further during December in West Africa and Saudi Arabia. Breeding continued and hopper bands were present in Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Morocco, Algeria, Sudan and Saudi Arabia. Swarms were reported in some of these countries. Although control operations are in progress, more swarms are likely to form in northern Mauritania, Mali, Niger and Saudi Arabia. Many of these will remain in situ but there is a risk that some may invade neighbouring countries.
During the period leading up to the recent military intervention in Iraq, UNHCR undertook a review of the various humanitarian scenarios which could result from such intervention. Contingency plans and preparedness measures focused on providing protection and relief to a potential refugee outflow. UNHCR also began planning for the possibility of a new state of affairs in Iraq that would be conducive to the voluntary repatriation of Iraqi refugees already residing abroad.

The Desert Locust situation remained calm during February. Small-scale breeding occurred near the Red Sea coast in Sudan. There were also unconﬁrmed reports of adults and hoppers in northern Mali. Breeding conditions were generally dry throughout the recession area because of poor rainfall. In South-West Asia, unprecedented rains occurred in southern Pakistan, including Baluchistan where small-scale breeding is expected during the forecast period.
The Desert Locust situation remained calm during January. Although conditions continued to be favourable in the winter breeding areas, no locusts have been reported in these places. Only isolated adults were present in Niger, southern Algeria and northern Somalia. There was an unconﬁrmed report of adults and hoppers in northern Mali. During the forecast period, small-scale breeding could occur along the Red Sea coasts. No signiﬁcant developments are expected.
