African countries, which continue to be impacted by the COVID pandemic, are now faced with another economic shock from the war in Ukraine. Increases in global commodity prices, and especially oil which rose above decade-long highs of more than $100 a barrel shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, are inflicting heavy costs to many African governments, their agricultural sectors, farmers, and vulnerable food-dependent citizens.

The conflict in Ukraine is severely impacting food security globally, and especially in many African countries that rely on key agricultural imports. Russia and Ukraine are among the top exporters of wheat (almost one-quarter of global wheat exports) as well as barley, sunflowers, and maize while Russia is a key producer of fertilizer. But war-induced disruptions in the agricultural sector in Ukraine and heavy economic sanctions on Russia are raising the price of wheat, fertilizer, and other agricultural products.
