Training and awareness creation on surveillance and control operations

To realize effective surveillance and ensure that control operations are carried out in a safe and effective manner, training and capacity-building will be conducted targeting field teams in the affected counties and also staff at the national level. The MITT will conduct training for targeted team members drawn from both the private and the public sector, including the Locust Command Centre staff, National Project Coordination Unit and the county teams. The MITT team will develop technical content, training curriculum and consolidate updated locust technical information. The technical content on locusts will further be packaged into brochures, fliers, posters, manuals and web-based information for dissemination to stakeholders. The training will mainly be undertaken at two levels, namely at the locust control bases and at the county level.
