The Agriculture Resilience Initiative in Ukraine aims to bolster agriculture exports and alleviate the global food security crisis exacerbated by Putin’s brutal war on Ukraine.
The Agriculture Resilience Initiative in Ukraine (AGRI-Ukraine) targets Ukraine’s immediate agricultural production and export challenges, while also simultaneously supporting the wider needs of Ukraine’s agriculture sector and bolstering Ukraine’s continued production of agricultural commodities through 2023.
USAID has contributed $100 million and seeks to leverage an additional $150 million for the Initiative, including from fellow donors and the private sector, with an overall target of $250 million. AGRI-Ukraine builds on a range of support USAID is providing to Ukraine’s agriculture sector in the wake of Putin’s full - scale invasion, including providing more than 12,800 Ukrainian farmers with seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and other assistance, helping 28% of the country’s registered agriculture enterprises deliver this year’s harvest despite the devastation caused by the Russian Federation’s aggression. This effort will bolster the entire agricultural sector, safeguarding this major economic engine for future generations of Ukrainians and restoring world food supply.
