Ukraine-Analyses on the consequences of the Russian war of aggression for Ukrainian agriculture

Two years after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the current issue of Ukraine-Analysen looks at the impact on Ukrainian agriculture.

Oleg Nivievskyi and Roman Neyter from the Kyiv School of Economics take stock of the financial consequences of the war-related damage and losses in the agricultural sector. At the same time, they give an idea of the scale of the reconstruction of this sustainably damaged sector, which the two authors estimate at 29.8 billion US dollars.

Alexander Mkrtchian and Daniel Müller (both IAMO) use Sentinel-2 satellite images to estimate the extent of the abandoned farmland on both sides of the front line. At least 14,000 km² of former farmland along the frontline has been left uncultivated as a result of the war. Of these, 8,000 km² are located in areas controlled by Ukraine.

IAMO researchers Franziska Schaft and Taras Gagalyuk have guest-edited this issue.
