DEFENDING THE FIELDS AGAINST DESERT LOCUSTS

Kenya

Titre : DEFENDING THE FIELDS AGAINST DESERT LOCUSTS

Pays  : Kenya

Date/Durée : May 2020 // Feb 2023

Projet ID : KEN 1191-20

Description
Kenya has not seen a plague of locusts of such magnitude in over 70 yrs. Its unusual severity is having an overwhelming effect, and the insects are destroying farmland and pastures that the people—already suffering from droughts and other hardships—depend on for their livelihoods as farmers and livestock breeders. To enable people to mitigate the impacts of this infestation, this project distributes insect netting, seeds (including seeds for growing animal feed), seedlings, and agricultural equipment. These deliveries are complemented by the provision of training in small-scale locust control.
