Cape Verde. Since unusually severe drought devastated a
large part of the harvest, Cabo Verde was affected by grasshopper
swarms from the African mainland in August and September.
The harsh K. cannot even at best produce more than a small
part of his food needs and was now forced to ask the outside
world for extra help. According to
CountryAAH, Morocco obeyed a plea for help against
the grasshoppers and sent two spraying planes. Of the crop
that had been saved until then, the grasshoppers were able
to destroy close to a third.
