Video: People in the Field Show Damage by Desert Locusts

Swarms of desert locusts have damaged over 200.000 hectares of cropland in Ethiopia and Somalia. These swarms put high pressure on the access to food. In April the FAO calculated that a million of people have been affected and require emergency food assistance. COVID-19 came on top of that.

In this video, colleagues of our partner organisations in the field show the damage and the aid which is being given in times of COVID-19.
