A vital part of Ukraine’s economy, the agriculture sector required systematic attention and strengthening.
Final Report: Ukraine AgroInvest Project.
Project Report | January 8, 2016
The AgroInvest project was USAID’s flagship agriculture program in Ukraine from 2011-2016. The project focused on increasing productivity and investment in the sector by facilitating implementation of market-driven policies and strengthening linkages of small and medium-scale producers (SMPs) to financial and commodity markets.
AgroInvest, implemented by Chemonics International, was developed to assist Ukraine to tap its vast agricultural potential and diversify its sources of prosperity, leading to broader economic recovery and contributing to a more food-secure world. The project’s overall scope of work was developed in 2010 and 2011 to address the issue that Ukraine’s capacity for sustainable, broad-based growth was stalled by unpredictable and incomplete agricultural policies, limited financial services for agriculture, and a weak market infrastructure that led to low yields and made it hard for small and medium producers to become competitive.
