The project requires funds to access farmers and processors on the front line throughout the country. It also requires access to input from international experts from emerging economies who have implemented regulatory reforms to benefit their countries' development. Beneficiaries are the farmers and producers (over 15,000,000 in Ukraine), and the entire country, as GDP grows. Agriculture is the industry in Ukraine with the most unexploited potential.


Alasdair travels Ukraine to speak with farmers and processors, using their input alongside research and analysis to create policy. He talks with regional and national governments to promote this policy on behalf of small and medium-sized businesses.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impacts include a regulatory climate that promotes agriculture entrepreneurship and innovation, especially in the rural areas. This transparency makes Ukraine more credible as an exporter, which promotes economic development.
