Creaking infrastructures that had been streamlined during the long recession could not respond to sudden upsurges; institutional memories, which tend to be short, had lost much knowledge hard won in the 1950s and 1960s; retired but experienced personnel and consultants with little or no locust experience came to assist young plant protection specialists facing a plague for the first time.

Remote sensing tools are a complement to, but not a substitute for local staff, well-trained in locust control and the ability to generate, use, and interpret forecasts effectively (see Fig. 2).
