The project has four component:

  2. Livelihoods Protection and Rehabilitation. The objective of Component 2 would be to help protect the poor and vulnerable in locust affected areas from human capitaland asset loss, enhance their access to food, and rehabilitate livelihoods that have been damaged or destroyed by swarms.

  3. Component 3: Coordination and Early Warning Preparedness. This component would strengthen the regional and national capacity for surveillance and control operations. Early warning systems will be developed and implemented to support prevention and rapid response to new and existing climate change induced locust infestation, thereby limiting incountry and cross-border spread and intensification.

  4. Component 4: Project Management. This would finance the associated costs such as implementation support, financial management, procurement, environmental and social
    management, communications and knowledge management. The communications component will help promote increased community awareness about the impacts of the
    locust swarms and the response efforts to support communities before, during and after the scourge
