AFRICA: In eastern Africa, harvests have improved food supply but farmers' incomes have been severely affected by falling prices. In Southern Africa, the 2002 maize production is anticipated to be reduced in several countries. The food supply situation in Malawi, Lesotho, Zambia and Zimbabwe is of particular concern.
