Access to updated and reliable information is crucial to a more efficient and resilient agricultural production in response to the escalating challenges of food security for the growing population and the impacts caused by extreme weather events.

For insurers, such information is essential to reduce the risk and to introduce new insurance schemes affordable for low-income smallholder farmers.
