Now in its seventh year, the conflict in eastern Ukraine continues to impact the food security and livelihoods of more than a million people, particularly women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities.
Compounded by the effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, needs have become more severe.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is working with partners in the Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster to:
• Ensure immediate access to food for the most vulnerable people affected by conflict and/or COVID-19.
• Provide emergency and time-critical agricultural assistance to improve food security.
• Enhance resilience to shocks by restoring agricultural livelihoods.
