Situation Générale en mai 2015, Prévision jusqu'à ’mi-juillet 2015
La situation relative au Criquet pèlerin est restée calme en mai. Aucune reproduction significative n'a eu lieu cette année dans les aires de reproduction printanière de l'Afrique du nord ouest, de la péninsule arabique et de l’Asie du sud-ouest, ou la végétation a continue a se dessécher.
Situation Générale en février 2015 Prévision jusqu'à ’mi-avril 2015
La situation relative au Criquet pèlerin est restée préoccupante en février le long de la cote de la mer Rouge, au Soudan et en Érythrée, où des opérations de lutte ont été réalisées contre un grand nombre de bandes larvaires, groupes d’ailes et essaims.
- A large area of enhanced rainfall may trigger localized flooding across parts of eastern Sudan.
- Consistently poor rainfall has led to deteriorating ground conditions across northeastern Nigeria and western Chad.
1) The potential for significantly heavy rainfall remains forecast over the River Nile and Kassala provinces of eastern Sudan, which may trigger localized flooding and elevated river levels along the Nile River basin during the next seven days.
Heavy rains were observed across dry areas in bi-modal regions along the Gulf of Guinea.
1) A pronounced late start of seasonal rainfall in July has delayed planting by approximately one month and has reduced crop yields across many parts of Sudan. The onset of continuous seasonal rainfall during September and October now remains critical for several local areas that have planted late. However, with seasonal rains quickly coming to an end, little time remains for additional rainfall.
Some relief to dryness is expected across the Gulf of Guinea region during the end of September.
1) A pronounced late start of seasonal rainfall in July has delayed planting by approximately one month and has reduced crop yields across many parts of Sudan. The onset of continuous seasonal rainfall during mid to late September now remains critical for several local areas that have planted late.
A slight reduction in rainfall was observed across West Africa, while seasonal rains continued over eastern Africa during the past week.
- Rainfall deficits grow along the Gulf of Guinea, while dryness persists in eastern Sudan.
1) A delayed start of the rainfall season across northwestern Ethiopia, southern Eritrea, and bordering areas in Sudan has begun to negatively impact cropping activities, including planting. Heavy rains are, however, forecast during the next outlook period, which could provide some relief to dry conditions throughout the region.
Heavy and above-average rains fell in Sudan, causing flooding and infrastructure damages.
1) A poor start of the rainfall season across northwestern Ethiopia, southern Eritrea, and bordering areas in Sudan has begun to negatively impact cropping activities, including planting. Above-average rains are, however, forecast during the next outlook period, which could provide some relief to dry conditions throughout the region.
Dryness worsens across Sudan, Eritrea and northwest Ethiopia.
Abnormal dryness develops across bi-modal areas in Ghana and southern Togo.
1) A migratory locust outbreak in October-November was accelerated with the landfall of Tropical Cyclone Haruna in February, which provided favorable conditions for locust breeding throughout western Madagascar. This large-scale outbreak should subside with cooler weather in July-August.
Rains continue to recover across the Sahel of West Africa, while rainfall deficits develop along the Gulf of Guinea.
Seasonal rainfall deficits grow and expand into eastern/central Sudan.
1) During much of May and the beginning of June, intermittent and insufficient rains had increased rainfall deficits over parts of northeastern Nigeria, resulting in poor NDVI values and delayed planting. However, recent moderate to heavy rains have decreased seasonal rainfall deficits and expected rains should be enough to satisfy cropping requirements.
1) Both anomalous seasonal rainfall and northward position of the Inter-Tropical front has favored breeding conditions for desert locusts over the southern Mauritania-western Mali border, central Niger-eastern Mali, Chad, and east-central Sudan. The continuation of above-average rainfall during September could lead to locust outbreak across many regions.

In view of the further deterioration of conditions in the flood-hit areas of Africa, the Federal Foreign Office has again increased its humanitarian aid by 200,000 euro to a total of 632,000 euro.
Federal Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier issued the following statement today in Berlin:
"The situation remains highly critical for the people in the flooded areas.
Despite urgent appeals United Nations agencies are facing a huge shortfall in funding to help well over a million flood victims across a wide swath of sub-Saharan Africa, from Ghana in the West to Ethiopia in the east, as they face food shortages, loss of crops and even the dangers of landmines from recent conflicts dislodged by the raging waters.
Of nearly $85 million sought recently for just Uganda and Sudan, only about $1 million has been forthcoming.
The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) voiced deep concern over the situation of some 300,000 people in northern Uganda, the vast …
The Federal Foreign Office has increased its humanitarian aid in the African countries affected by the flood disaster to 430,000 euro.
In view of the dramatic worsening of the situation, a further 300,000 euro was today made available to relief organizations for emergency aid measures in Uganda and Mali. These funds are to be used to provide people in need with blankets, tarpaulins, mosquito nets and other necessities.
In recent weeks the Federal Foreign Office has already pledged 130,000 euro to procure emergency articles and food for the flood victims in Sudan and Ghana.
