IBISA is tackling the problem of uninsurability of millions of farmers and breeders worldwide by enabling the next generation of agriculture insurance.

IBISA is a tech platform for insurance actors to unlock this market. IBISA designs innovative weather-based index products and provides the platform to distribute and manage them in a cost-efficient and automated way using earth observation and blockchain technology.

One of the key innovations and enablers of IBISA is our solution to assess losses, efficiently, remotely and in a scalable manner. It combines Earth Observation data and our Crowd-Watching platform.

For Crowd-Watching we have built a community of ‘watchers’, individuals that provide an independent assessment based on the data we display on the platform. These assessments are consolidated in the ‘Wisdom of the Crowd’ that feeds the policy management system and triggers payments.
