Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) technical reports

The FAO has many reports that are written after outbreaks, conferences, trainings, etc. to document and reflect on lessons learned, techniques, and outcomes. Desert locust progress reports, real-time evaluations and environmental assessments

Locust Pesticide Referee Group (LPRG)

According to the FAO website, "The Pesticide Referee Group is an independent body of experts that advises FAO on the efficacy and environmental impact of different pesticides for locust control. This advice is based on a critical review of reports submitted by industry, research institutes, plant protection departments, of other available literature, and on the experience of its members and of FAO experts. The resulting advice systematically lists pesticides suitable for locust control from the scientific point of view. The PRG has no legal status. All uses of pesticides discussed in this report are fully subject to national legislation, regulation and registration."
