AgroInsurance hosted a webinar dedicated to Covid-19 Survey results

On March 10, 2021, AgroInsurance International hosted a webinar “Covid-19 pandemic and agricultural insurance market. Report Summary”. The webinar discussed the impact caused by COVID-19 pandemics on agricultural insurance industry in 2020. Survey outputs were presented by Roman Shynkarenko, founder of Agroinsurance International. This survey was based on feedback received from 64 respondents from 29 countries. According to the survey results, COVID-19 did not have a significant effect on business operations of the agricultural insurance market overall. COVID-19 became an influencing factor in 2020, which encouraged insurance companies to focus on new technologies and solutions more seriously. Three companies sponsored this survey and during webinar they presented examples of technology solutions that helped agricultural underwriters and loss adjusters at time of 2020 lockdowns. Nick Ohrtman (Geosys) spoke about two examples of how Geosys analytics was integrated in their customers workflow in Brazil. Gregoire Tombez (GreenTriangle) presented cases of how agriculture insurance players digitized the loss adjustment process in several countries using solutions developed by Green Triangle company. Victor Yermak, CEO and founder of Skyglyph explained a cloud-based solution, developed by his company, that allowed insurers doing virtual inspections of clients’ fields and assets in 2020 by using their remote technology Virtual Crop Inspection. More than 80 online participants from 44 countries joined the webinar and contributed to the discussion adding more insights for better understanding of challenges faced by agricultural insurance industry worldwide.

Workshop: From Best Practices to Practice – Earth Observation for Agro-Insurance

In the last few years there has been a fast growth in the amount of Earth observation (EO) data acquired from space. Earth observation (EO) provides various possibilities to support business processes of the agro-insurance industry. However, there seems to be a major gap between the perceived potential and the actual application of available EO capabilities by the agro-insurance sector. The Earth Observation Best Practice for Agro-Insurance (EO4I) project, initiated by the European Space Agency (ESA), builds on this bottleneck to fully exploit the opportunities EO offers for the agro-insurance sector. To go to the next step, a dedicated workshop on future EO-based insurance solutions is organized to progress from the best practice to practice. The two EO companies GeoVille and VITO together with the champion users from the agro-insurance sector are working closely together to find out more about the needs and challenges of the agro-insurance’s sector and how these might be addressed with the current and future EO capabilities. The results of these discussions and workshops will be presented during the third workshop. We are delighted to invite you on behalf of the project consortium to participate in this workshop. This workshop takes place virtually on April 28 and 29, 2021 and is divided into two morning sessions. In this workshop the capabilities and gaps will be aligned with possible future insurance solutions providing higher integration of the EO services into the agricultural insurance operations. The Project Team will extract the full potential of EO for the agro-insurance sector in dedicated presentations and following discussions .

Earth observation-based products and services can help with the difficult task to support farmers and assess potential damages to crop and agro-companies. The ESA Best Practice project EO4I has sought to capture these developments and assess and analyse both the geo-information needs of the agro-insurance sector and the Earth observation-based services and products currently considered best practice by the wider EO community. The results are presented and synthesised on the EO4I website.
