Evaluation and impact assessment of the Water Efficient Maize for Africa (WEMA) project in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

The project was implemented in two phases over a 10-year period with the first phase lasting from 2008 to 2012 and the second phase from 2013 to 2018 in six countries (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Ethiopia, and South Africa). The project aimed at enhancing food and nutrition security in sub-Saharan Africa through development and deployment of drought tolerant maize hybrids royalty-free to smallholder maize farmers and also benefit all gender and age groups (male, female, and youth) maize farmers in moderate to high-risk drought prone agro-ecologies.
