Blockchain compensation agriculture

Hilde Van Leirsberghe and Raf Ganseman

(Submission #355)


Human beings have been changing landscapes since the dawn of time. Whilst it used to be farmers acting on natural land the focus of this presentation lays on the pressures of urban planning on farmers, and how these farmers can be compensated.

The expropriation of farmland by governments and the compensations paid to farmers are a major source of social conflicts and is well described in literature.

Three major question arise in this context :

1) how to compensate more quickly

2) how to minimise administrative overhead

3) how to ensure more transparency.

How do we compensate these actors more quickly with less administrative overhead but ensuring full transparancy is the challenge tackled by this project. Blockchain can provide a technical solution to this quandary. We will highlight the solutions selected by the administration to link several sources f (geographic) information to streamline administrative procedures.
