    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 fertilizers, where exportable supplies are often concentrated in a handful of countries. This concentration could expose these markets to increased vulnerability to shocks and volatility. Many countries of the NENA region are heavily dependent on imported foodstuff and fertilizers from Russia and Ukraine; and thus, the current conflict puts the region at risk of shortening of food supply from Russia and Ukraine as well as raising food prices as a result of the disturbances in post-COVID-19.

    A range of methods are used for measuring agricultural price distortions. The approaches are broadly similar, insofar as they calculate the extent to which prices are elevated or suppressed relative to a benchmark “undistorted” price. However, there are significant differences in the precise methods of calculation. This note raises some methodological issues and considers the effectiveness of the measures in informing policy debates and decisions relating to food security.
