Very low maize yields for most countries in the Eastern Africa region. The maize yields for the entire Eastern Africa region are expected to be very poor for most countries and food shortages can be expected to continue. This is most notable in the main growing areas of maize in Sudan, Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia with yields between -8% and -14% from the 5-year average. With the worst drought in 60 years the famine can be expected to spread out through the region as crop yields are likely to remain far below the average yields.
