These guidelines discuss the reduction of environmental
and human health risks from insecticide use during locust control. Practical
recommendations are given on how to address risk reduction during the campaign
preparation phase, how to implement it during the control operations, and
how to evaluate it in post-campaign follow-up. The document is also about
environmental and human health monitoring during locust control operations.
The document is divided into the following sections:
- Risk reduction
- Campaign preparation
- Campaign execution
- Campaign follow-up.
These guidelines are part of a series of
six documents on the Desert Locust and are primarily intended for use by
decision-makers, field officers and monitoring staff involved in the organization
and execution of Desert Locust control operations.
