DL Situation
Desert Locust Bulletin, No 463, April 2017
The Desert Locust situation is currently calm. Low numbers of solitarious adults are present in Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt and Iran. The situation continues to remain unclear in Yemen where surveys cannot be conducted.

During the forecast period, small-scale breeding could occur in parts of the interior in Saudi Arabia and Yemen, and in a few places in northeast Morocco, central Algeria and southeast Iran. Although this may cause locust numbers to increase slightly, they will remain below threatening levels and no significant developments are likely.

Regular surveys should be conducted throughout the spring to monitor the situation and prepare for the summer breeding period.
