Background: There is a growing risk of flooding for agricultural land from climate change, leading to lower food security, higher insurance premiums for farmers and harmful chemical runoffs from the land.

Problem: Farmers can often create ROI-positive flood defences but have challenges knowing which solution to place where, create the business case, and obtain funds from government subsidies and/or lenders.

Solution: Combine multiple data sources (soil types, satellite imagery, climate forecasts, …) with financial modelling to build the business case. Create off-the-shelf applications to apply for recently implemented government subsidies (e.g. UK link below), and business case for banks/insurers.
