CHC Legacy Brief 1 - Improving Coordination

The U.S. government’s Feed the Future initiative, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is proud to award $245,000 to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to measure the impact of desert locusts in Uganda. The worst desert locust outbreak in decades is underway in the greater Horn of Africa region, including Uganda.  Thousands of hectares of cropland and pasture have been affected.  This is a major threat in a region that is already facing food security crises.  Since February 2020, the desert locust swarms have reached Karamoja, Teso, Acholi, and Lango regions, posing a potential threat to the food security of more than 1.3 million people.  The Government of Uganda needs urgent support to detect and reduce locust populations, prevent more swarms, and avoid the spread to even more areas.
