Desert Locust Response in Somalia
The key objective of the response is to provide life-saving assistance to people facing severe food insecurity. The design of the intervention is based on the sectors directly related to the locust infestation. The intervention will target the most vulnerable households, to improve direct access to food, protect and rebuild livelihoods, which contributes to the structural approach addressing the infestation. All responses are adapted to the current COVID-19 pandemic, and activities are carried out in a way to minimize risk to both staff and beneficiaries and reduce the spread. Most interventions incorporate activities to raise awareness on hygiene and disease prevention, and in some cases respond directly with additional Health and WASH interventions.
