    2022
    Also available in:

    This document provides an up-to-date summary of the humanitarian situation in Ukraine and the response of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on the ground. As of 2 June 2022, the area sown with spring crops for the 2022 harvest decreased by 20 percent in comparison with the previous year, according to Ukraine’s Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food (MAPF). As of 23 June, the number of internally displaced people (IDP) has decreased to 6.3 million (14 percent of the population). FAO's revised Rapid Response Plan (RRP) requires USD 115.4 million to assist 979 320 people in rural areas through December 2022. To address the storage crisis, FAO has developed a Grain Storage Support Strategy, requiring an additional USD 50 million, as an extension of the RRP, to deploy 3.2 million tonnes of storage capacity in Ukraine – 20 percent of the estimated overall need. As of 15 July 2022, FAO has raised USD 30.4 million against the total of USD 165.4 million under the RRP and Grain Storage Support Strategy, leaving a gap of USD 135 million. Of this, USD 102 million are urgently needed to support vulnerable households and increase agricultural production in rural areas. As of 12 July, FAO has reached 30 622 households (80 000 people) in 13 oblasts of Ukraine with emergency agricultural support. FAO is on the ground in Ukraine with a team of over 95 members, including technical and operational staff deployed to support the scale-up.

    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.

    Emergency Food Security and Livelihoods Assistance to Conflict Affected Households in Ukraine - TCP/UKR/3901 2024

    The crisis in Ukraine reached alarming proportions. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimated a staggering 4.5 million people requiring urgent agricultural livelihoods support and food assistance, which represents a 2 000 percent increase since the onset of the crisis in February 2022. As the conflict continued to escalate, a humanitarian crisis especially in East Ukraine became dire. To address this, a project was designed to target the most vulnerable populations affected by the conflict, particularly those residing in rural areas of Donetsk and Luhansk oblast. These regions saw a significant deterioration in living conditions due to the ongoing conflict, resulting in higher unemployment rates and limited access to livelihood opportunities. Many households within 0 to 10 kilometers of the contact line were left grappling with food insecurity, resorting to backyard agriculture and livestock production to meet their basic nutritional needs.
