Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

The 49-member Council of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the organization’s governing body between biennial meetings of the FAO Conference, held its ninetieth session at Rome, Italy, from 17 to 28 November 1986. The Council, noting the dramatic increase in grasshopper and locust activity in many parts of Africa and the threat that these pests posed to crops and to the goal of food self-sufficiency, urged that national and regional control facilities be strengthened to counter that threat and called on the FAO Director-General to initiate, in consultation with Governments and international organizations, long-term arrangements for migratory pest control and plant protection.
