Workshop on user design requirements G4INDO IT platform platform in support of implementing Indonesia’s crop insurance policy' (19-03-2015)

The workshop “User design requirements G4INDO IT platform in support of implementing Indonesia’s crop insurance policy “ is also referred to as the First Technical Workshop G4INDO. It brought together all the partners involved in the design of the G4INDO IT platform.
 

The IT platform constitutes the core of the project. It is a user-friendly interface with input for the suppliers of geodata, hydrological parameters, crop growth data, and weather and seasonal statistics on the one side, and users of this input on the other side. The users are the insurers who need the information in order to assess  claims from farmers. Claims are issued by farmers who have taken out an crop yield insurance contract and who feel they are entitled to compensation because of crop loss.

The event was launched at the premises of BMKG, a partner of the G4INDO project. It took place on 19 March 2015. Participants included experts from the Ministry of Agriculture, LAPAN, PT Jasindo, and the Universitas Katolik Soegiapranata, Semarang. During sometime lively discussions, the profile of the interface was further defined. What data can be supplied and in what form, and how do the users like to have the data presented to them? Where do we store the sometimes voluminous sets of data? How do secure access to the data by the users? Also discussed was the extent to which the IT data can and should replace inspections by claim adjusters in the field.
