The Desert Locust Information Offices in the front-line-countries; Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen receive and analyze Desert Locust and ecology information and hence disseminate it to the concerned staff to undertake their survey/control operations and other actions. Geographic Information System (RAMSES) and eLocust v.3 (field data entry & transmission), allows national survey and control officers in locust-affected countries to record and transmit data in real time via satellite from the field to their national locust centers to manage and analyze ecological, weather and locust data, including survey and control results in order to assess the current locust situation and determine the need for survey and control operations.
