Agriculture Resilience Initiative (AGRI) - Ukraine

The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), launched the Agriculture Resilience Initiative (AGRI) - Ukraine to bolster Ukrainian agricultural production and exports and to help alleviate the global food security crisis exacerbated by Putin’s brutal war on Ukraine. AGRI-Ukraine is critical to supporting Ukraine’s export and agricultural sector needs, which will remain vulnerable to the Russian Federation’s aggression in the months and years to come.

USAID contributed $100 million and seeks to leverage an additional $150 million for the Initiative, including from fellow donors, the private sector and foundations, with an overall investment target of $250 million.

Lines of Effort

Purchase and delivery of critical inputs for farmers who have limited supplies or limited mobility

Improve and increase export logistics and infrastructure

Responding to requests directly from Ukrainian farmers and Ukraine’s Government, 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. This includes providing more than 12,700 Ukrainian farmers with seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and other assistance, helping approximately 20% of the country’s registered agriculture enterprises deliver this year’s harvest despite the devastation caused by the Russian Federation’s aggression. This effort bolsters the entire agricultural sector, safeguarding this major economic engine for future generations of Ukrainians.
