Background

The Global Early Warning – Early Action (EWEA) report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The report is part of FAO’s EWEA system, which aims to translate forecasts and early warnings into anticipatory action.
EWEA enables FAO to act early before disasters have happened and to mitigate or even prevent their impact. By lessening damages to livelihoods and protecting assets and investments, FAO can help local livelihoods become more resilient to threats and crises.

A Desert Locust outbreak has developed on the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia as a result of unusually good rains from July to mid-September 2016. So far, two generations of breeding have occurred on the coastal plains south of Jeddah between Lith and Jizan, and ground control operations are in progress.

The situation was exacerbated by irregular and incomplete surveys in the past few months as well as the likelihood that adult groups probably arrived from adjacent areas of Yemen.
