The federal government is gearing up to launch a World Bank-funded locust emergency and food security project in the country amid claims by a federal minister that the catastrophic impact of locust attacks on crops has been minimised with the help of local authorities.

The $200 million project, the first federal agricultural project to be fi­­n­a­nced by the WB, had been submitted for approval by the Central Dev­elo­p­ment Working Party (CDWP) of the Plan­­ning Commission for its upcoming meeting, according to a press release.

The Locust Emergency and Food Security (LEAFS) project would carry out its activities in 18 districts: nine in Balochistan, four in Punjab, four in Sindh and one in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Meanwhile, Federal Minister for National Food Security and Research Syed Fakhar Imam claimed that the impact of desert locusts on the country’s agriculture had been minimised to some extent, and by and large the situation was under control.
