Project Report: “Ukrainian Commodities for Global Food Security and Ukrainian Farmer Security”
Today we publish the October report on the outcome of the project “Repairing Broken Food Trade Routes Ukraine – Africa”. The latest report on “Repairing Broken Food Trade Routes Ukraine – Africa” covers:
- Ukraine’s role as a global exporter
- Decrease of production and exports from Ukraine
- Current impediments for Ukrainian agricultural exports: seaports and western border
The role of the World Trade Institute (WTI) in the MATS project is to identify and explore “broken” Ukrainian-African food trade routes due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Starting with a food trade flow chart pre- and post-24 February 2022, it will assess, first, whether Ukrainian (or African) traders can again supply these products (Output 1). Failing that, whether the new EU-financed “Crisis Management” (or another) programme can possibly make up for lost Ukrainian agrifood exports (Output 2). It will also identify alternative exporters (if any) that might already have filled in agrifood demand in Africa (Output 3). Importantly, the Project also looks at the potential effect of these developments on competing farm production in Africa (Output 4).
