    Locust Outbreak in Kenya

    The current desert locust situation continues to deteriorate and represents a grave threat to food security and livelihoods in the Horn of Africa. Right now Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia are the most affected countries but the risk to South Sudan and Uganda is growing. Food crops and livestock forage are being heavily impacted. The Desert Locust has a high destructive potential: just a 1 square km swarm can potentially eat as much food in 1 day as 35,000 people could. A farmer might see his entire crop destroyed.
