As El Niño is a weather-based phenomenon, we must always bear in mind that it is unpredictable. Furthermore, heavy rains do not necessarily produce a locust outbreak. Nevertheless, the Desert Locust Information Service (DLIS), AGPMM is advising northern Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Yemen and, to a lesser extent, Sudan and Saudi Arabia to be especially vigilant in winter breeding areas along the coasts of the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea during the upcoming season and to ensure that all areas are surveyed regularly and reported in a timely manner.
