Ukraine One Year Later: The Impact of the War on Agricultural Markets and Food Security
IFPRI Policy Seminar
09:00 am > 10:30 am UTC-05:00
One year after Russia invaded Ukraine, the war continues to affect global markets. World stock levels remain tight, and while prices have fallen back to pre-war levels, much uncertainty remains. This seminar will examine how the war has affected global markets, particularly wheat markets. Speakers will discuss the war’s impacts on Ukraine’s producers, wheat buyers and importers in the MENA region, and households in Egypt and Yemen. In addition, the discussion will address export restrictions and sanctions that have exacerbated price levels and volatility.
During this seminar hosted by IFPRI, speakers will discuss the war’s impacts on Ukraine’s producers, wheat buyers and importers in the MENA region, and households in Egypt and Yemen.
This is the second event in the IFPRI-AMIS seminar series on Making sense of food and Agriculture Markets.
