Abstract: Maize is the most important staple cereal grain in eastern and Central Africa (ECA) providing more than half the daily calorie and protein intakes of most of the population. It is largely used directly for human food but increasingly for animal feed. CIMMYT activities in ECA are implemented through special project funds and in close collaboration with national programs and regional networks. This report presents achievements obtained in 2002 under the following projects: African Maize Stress (AMS); Insect Resistance Maize for Africa (IRMA); Strengthening Maize seed Supply Systems for small-scale Farmers in Western Kenya and Uganda; Engineering Striga Resistance Maize; and Enhancing the Nutritional Quality of Locally Adapted Maize cultivars in Eastern and Southern Africa by incorporating Quality Protein Maize (QPM) traits. It also described the work of the CIMMYT Economics Program in eastern Africa, and lists CIMMYT staff in the region as well as key partners. Among these are the donor agencies that generously support the above work: the Rockefeller Foundation, BMZ-Germany, the Nippon Foundation, the OPEC Fund for International Development, CIDA-Canada, and the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Development.
