The Global Humanitarian Overview

Is based on detailed analysis of wide-ranging data from many different sources, and face-to-face interviews with hundreds of thousands of people directly affected by humanitarian crises across the globe;
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. Consequently, vegetation was drying out and locust numbers were decreasing. Small-scale breeding continued in western Mauritania but locust numbers remained low. 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.
