The Desert Locust situation continued to remain calm during October. Seasonal rains ended in the summer breeding areas of the Sahel in West Africa and Sudan as well as along the Indo-Pakistan border.

A second generation of breeding is thought to be underway in one area on the Red Sea coast in Eritrea where good rains have fallen since May.
