Notes with satisfaction the considerable progress made in initiating research aimed at finding new and environmentally acceptable approaches to locust control; calls upon FAO to assist the countries concerned in strengthening their preventive control capabilities for desert locust control by ensuring that technically appropriate programmes are developed that are complementary to and integrated with those of regional bodies; requests FAO, over the short and medium term, to reinforce existing structures and current technologies, including early warning systems such as ARTEMIS (Africa Real Time Environmental Monitoring using Imaging Satellites), which contribute to preventive control; requests the Director-General of FAO to submit to the Economic and Social Council at its 2nd regular session of 1991 an up-to-date report on the implementation of the international strategy for the fight against locust and grasshopper infestation, particularly in Africa.
