    Global Information and Early Warning System
    FAO Trade and Markets. Transparent and efficient food and agricultural commodity markets and trade for global food security
    2020
    Established after the food crises of the early 1970s, the Global Information and Early Warning System on Food and Agriculture (GIEWS) continuously monitors and reports on food supply and demand across the world. It is a leading source of information on food production and food security at national, regional and global levels. Through assessments and reports, GIEWS alerts national and international decision makers on impending food crises, aiming to guide their intervention. GIEWS provides comprehensive market intelligence on agricultural commodities and supports national and regional initiatives to establish and enhance early warning systems.

    MONITORING, providing EARLY WARNING, and acting promptly to control outbreaks of locust and other migratory pests are crucial to ensure that timely and appropriate action can be taken when an emergency arises. The Desert Locust Information Service (DLIS) at FAO Headquarters continuously monitors global weather, ecological conditions and the locust situation. Geo-referenced data in the field are collected and analysed on a daily basis. This analysis, carried out by the national control locust cen tres and by FAO DLIS, relies on a range of computer-based software tools which were developed by FAO and several partners for early warning purposes. The handheld device called eLocust is a striking example of these tools. These components constitute the oldest migratory pest monitoring and early warning system in the world.
