Desert Locust Bulletin, No 470, November 2017
Small-scale breeding expected along Red Sea coasts
The Desert Locust situation continues to remain calm in all countries and no significant developments are expected during December.

In the Western Region, isolated solitarious adults are present in parts of northwest Mauritania, northern Niger, Algeria and northeast Chad, and small-scale breeding is underway in a few places but locust numbers remain low and insignificant. During the forecast period, small-scale breeding could occur if rains fall in northwest Mauritania and Western Sahara. Locust numbers will decline in the northern Sahel while a few scattered adults are likely to persist in parts of northern Mali and Niger.

In the Central Region, low numbers of solitarious adults are present in a few places of the winter breeding areas along the Red Sea coast in Yemen and Sudan. Small-scale breeding will occur during December along both sides of the Red Sea, especially on the coastal plains in Saudi Arabia where heavy rains fell last month.

In the Eastern Region, no locusts are present and no significant developments are expected in the coming month.
