Agriculture and Rural Development Support Program
Ukraine has some of the world’s most fertile soil, but fragmentation of the land has limited the agriculture sector’s success: More than half of Ukraine’s gross agricultural product is generated by approximately 4 million smallholder farmers scattered across the country. The USAID Agriculture and Rural Development Support program is working with the government, businesses, and community leaders to create policies and programs that will facilitate more effective land governance and support an open, functional land market. The project strengthens partnerships among these groups to increase investments in agricultural infrastructure and rural communities. With this support, Ukraine can transform its agriculture sector into an engine of rural development.
