The Pakistani Ambassador to China Moin ul Haque made the remarks when met with Huang Wenjiang, a Research Fellow of the Aerospace Information Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and Zhou Jinfeng, Secretary-General of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) at the Embassy of Pakistan in Beijing on June 20.

Huang’s team just released the latest Report of Monitoring and Assessment of Desert Locust in Africa and Asia on June 18, 2022.

According to the estimate of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), up to 40 percent of global crop production is lost to pests annually. Each year, plant diseases cost the global economy over $220 billion, and invasive insects at least $70 billion.

Among the invasive insects, desert locust and fall armyworm are the main reasons for the grain reduction and environmental deterioration in Pakistan.

To fight the invasive species and safeguard food security, Huang’s team has also released a series of reports of Monitoring and Assessment of Desert Locust specially for Pakistan since 2020.
