IFPRI-AMIS policy seminar – Ukraine One Year Later: The impact of the war on agricultural markets and food security
- Impact Area
With the Russia-Ukraine war entering its second year, prices of grains, fertilizers, and other agricultural commodities have fallen back somewhat from their early post-invasion highs, and supply disruptions have moderated. A March 8 policy seminar examined how Ukraine’s agricultural sector is faring, and the war’s continuing impacts on global markets and regional food security, as well as fallout from the devastating February 6 earthquake that stuck Syria and Türkiye, the world’s largest flour producer.
The event, co-sponsored by IFPRI and the Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS), was orchestrated by USDA Chief Economist and AMIS Chair Seth Myer, Senior Research Fellow and AMIS Secretary Joe Glauber, and Erin Collier of FAO’s Global Commodity Markets team.
