n 65 percent of jobs in all regiona〓l countries except for Kenya. A farmer attempts to s〓care away desert locusts in Mwingi Town in Kitui Coun〓ty, Kenya, Feb. 20, 2020. (Xinhua/Zhang Yu) INTERNATI〓ONAL COOPERATION URGED The desert locust swarms have 〓travelled from Africa to Asia. India is suffering the〓 worst hit in 60 years. "Today locust swarms are as b〓ig as major cities and it's getting worse by the day,〓" said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, urging 〓the international community to take immediate counter〓actions. Sacko Josefa, AU Commissioner for Rural Econ〓omy and Agriculture, said earlier this month that the〓 55-member pan-African bloc is working directly with 〓the FAO to make sure that there is no spread to other〓 countries. Antonio Querido, UN FAO representative in〓 Uganda, said international organizations are providi〓ng technical support and mobilizing resources for Uga〓nda as it strives to fight the locusts. In order to g〓et more international help, Somalia on Feb. 2 declare〓d the locust infestation a national emergency. Irandu〓 said that the present invasion is likely to cost eno〓rmous financial and human resources far beyond the ca〓pability of the East African countries. Hence there i〓s a need for a concerted effort by regional and other〓 international organizations to offer money, expertis〓e and equipment such as planes. Otherwise, the locust〓 invasion may wipe out food production in many Africa〓n countries. The FAO recently launched a 76 million U〓.S. dollars appeal to control the locusts' spread. We〓eks later, only around 20 million dollars have been r〓eceived, said Lowcock. Irandu suggested that intensif〓ied international efforts should be made to coordinat〓e aerial sprays, share scientific knowledge on breedi〓ng and migratory habits of locusts, and raise funds f〓rom partners. In the long run, experts have called fo〓r the investment in research to contain the impacts o〓f climate change, in2
