Locust invasions pose a threat to food security in parts of East Africa, India and Pakistan, warns WMO

Desert Locust Attack

Locust attacks are a grave concern for food security in parts of East Africa, India and Pakistan due to changing climate conditions that can be linked to human activity, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) has said.

The specialised agency of the United Nations said climatic changes and extreme weather events like increases in temperature and rainfall over desert areas, and the strong winds associated with tropical cyclones, provide a new environment for pest breeding, development and migration.
