Parametric Excessive Rain Insurance

Heavy rainfall has a devastating impact on food production around the world. Fortunately, the availability of satellite data has facilitated the emergence of parametric insurance to protect farmers against the effects of excessive rain, even in remote locations.

Addressing the excess rain risk

Heavy precipitation poses multifaceted risks to farmlands, including crop loss and damage, soil erosion, equipment loss, planting delays, and more. Compounding this challenge, climate change exacerbates the threat, having the ability to intensify storms and amplify the frequency of extreme rainfall events. This challenge spans the globe, whether it's local storms in Europe delaying agriculture production or monsoon rains in India and Bangladesh damaging crops. 

Parametric crop insurance presents an innovative solution for farmers to receive compensation in the event of production losses stemming from excessive precipitation. Offering a streamlined approach, parametric insurance relies on remote data to assess losses, eliminating on-site loss adjustment. Policyholders receive a payout within weeks of the event, bypassing the need for extensive evaluations. This swift response provides an emergency lifeline, empowering farmers to swiftly address unforeseen losses and mitigate financial strains.
