Abstract: Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, regional food infrastructures were destroyed leaving millions of people at severe risk of hunger both in and outside of Ukraine. What is happening in the major food producing region will also have a ripple effect on the global food system. This presentation will discuss the complexity of disruptions in local and global supply chains, emerging responses, and efforts to address the refugee crisis on the regional level.
