Ukraine: Humanitarian response update (13 May 2022)
May 2022

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that at least 20 percent of Ukraine’s winter crops – wheat, most notably – may not be harvested or planted. This will further reduce the global food supply, with serious implications for Europe, Central Asia and beyond.

FAO’s revised Rapid Response Plan was issued on 19 April 2022, seeking USD 115.4 million to assist 979 320 people in rural areas through December. To date, FAO has raised USD 11 million. Further contributions are urgently needed to reach more people to maintain the spring cropping season and support the harvest preparation.

As of 11 May, FAO has reached 18 044 households (46 914 people) and will reach an additional 14 647 households (38 082 people) in the coming days with support. Moreover, at least a further 15 200 households (39 520 people) will be supported in the coming months. In addition, 83 000 kits containing animal feed and vitamin-mineral supplements will be delivered to livestock keepers. Several FAO monitoring missions are currently underway.
