Country Profile - Djibouti

The Republic of Djibouti, located in north-eastern Africa, lies on the western shore of the Gulf of Aden. It is bounded on the east by the Gulf of Aden, on the south-east by Somalia, on the south and west by Ethiopia and on the north by Eritrea.
It has an area of 23 201 km2. Djibouti consists principally of desolate, arid plateaus. The Gulf of Tadjoura forms a deep indentation in the country's coast. Inland lie several mountain ranges with heights of 1500 to 1800 m with a rugged plateau beyond.
Djibouti has one of the world's hottest and driest climates. The temperature at Djibouti City averages 26° C in January and 36° C in July. Annual rainfall ranges from less than 130 mm on the coast to about 380 mm in the mountains. Djibouti harbours potential Desert Locust breeding areas in the summer season in the area of Damerjog and during winter in the area of Dorra.
The Locust Control Unit is based in town at the Ministère de L’Agriculture, de l’Elevage et de la Mer under the Crop Protection Section.
It is managed by one National Locust Coordinator responsible for survey and control matters, information management and training. The National Coordinator, who is at the same time Liaison Officer to the EMPRES/CR Programme is being assisted in his tasks by four plant protection technicians and six assistant staff.
