The FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) Rapid Response Plan for Ukraine for 2023 includes three main areas that will require funding in the amount of $ 205 million.

FAO Chief Economist Maximo Torero Cullen presented an update on the plan at a special meeting for G7 ministers during the Global Forum on Food and Agriculture (GFFA) in Berlin on January 21.

According to him, plan includes:

  • restoring food security and ensuring food independence for 500 thousand rural households along the front line or other areas that have been significantly affected by the provision of seeds, feed and cash assistance;
  • restoration of critical value chains through the provision of diesel and gas generators, wheat, barley, oats and peas, temporary and long-term modular granaries and other needs;
  • strengthening critical elements of the agri-food system by strengthening capacity in the field of testing and certification of alternative grain export routes, restoring veterinary services, partnering with specialized organizations to promote the disposal of explosive objects on agricultural land and assessing losses.

In 2022, as part of the implementation of FAO programs, more than 26 thousand grain bags were distributed, intended for storage of more than 5 million tons of grain, as the infrastructure of Ukraine was damaged. At the beginning of the year, vegetable seeds and seed potatoes were provided for more than 30 thousand households, and more than 5 thousand tons of winter wheat seeds were provided to support small farms.

FAO also provided multipurpose financial assistance to more than 2 thousand vulnerable rural households, in particular in Dnipropetrovsk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions.
