The importance of Ukraine and the Russian Federation for global agricultural markets and the risks associated with the current conflict


FAO in-depth analysis assesses market structure and risks, as well as provides policy recommendations

The Russian Federation and Ukraine are among the most important producers of agricultural commodities in the world. Both countries are net exporters of agricultural products, and they both play leading supply roles in global markets of foodstuffs and fertilisers, where exportable supplies are often concentrated in a handful of countries. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has prepared an in-depth analysis of the possible impacts of the ongoing conflict. This includes market shares and trade profiles, as well as risks associated with trade, prices, logistics, production, energy and humanitarian issues.
