Five years ago, the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) was established to bring a new dynamic to tackling emergencies. CERF’s creation was an acknowledgement that the humanitarian system had become too slow and cumbersome in releasing funds.
The Desert Locust (SGR1) activities increased in November in Sudan where ground operations controlled various instar hopper bands and adult groups in more than 6,900 ha in the Northern, the River Nile, Khartoum and Red Sea States. Some adults moved to the northeast of the country and laid eggs while a few crossed the Red Sea and reached northeastern coast of Saudi Arabia on November 30th. Breeding continued in northwestern Mauritania where control operations treated 400 ha.

The first six months of 2010 were characterized by two major earthquake events in Haiti and Chile that required a massive response effort, leveraging the full range of the Movement's disaster response resources, as well as its global coordination and technical assistance capacities.

Scattered adults were reported in northern Sudan and Eastern Ethiopia and a similar situation may be present in southern Mauritania, Mali, Niger, eastern Chad, Eritrea, the interior of Yemen as well as along the Indo-Pakistan borders.
