The Congress will enable the eight start-ups to demonstrate how technologies are transforming agricultural business models and to highlight new opportunities for the sector.
Founded in 1986, ALASA brings the public and private sectors together, combining efforts to develop and promote agricultural insurance as a fundamental tool of agricultural policies in Latin American countries.
Every two years, ALASA organizes the International Agricultural Insurance Congress – the most important event for the sector in the region, connecting key players in agricultural insurance and reinsurance.
In addition to the conferences, the event provides participants with an environment that facilitates the sharing of experiences and perspectives on the future direction of the industry.
As part of its activities, IICA has been highlighting the importance of formulating public policy components focusing on risk management, in order to create predictability, stability and continuity in the operations of medium- and small-scale producers.
