Agriculture damage

To be compensated, those affected by damage in agriculture have available the Simplified Indemnity System and the PIM/AFE System, which work online on the Renova Foundation website. Access to the platforms must be done by an attorney or public defender representing the person. All service is virtual, and the documents necessary for the indemnification process must be sent through the platforms, where the acceptance agreements are also signed.

In the Simplified Indemnity System, which serves the informal public, the value of compensation for subsistence agriculture up to OHWL (Ordinary Height of Water Level) + 2 km is R$ 54,082.13. As for informal commercialization agriculture: up to OHWL + 2 km is R$94,195.

Those who had formal agriculture as their activity may present or request a report/inspection, proving their direct dependence on the water of the Doce River, its tributaries and/or the estuarine region. In order to serve as evidence of damages in agriculture, this report must certify the direct dependence on water and rivers and/or estuarine region, mention the existence of an irrigation system and meet the minimum acceptance requirements:

  1. Be issued by official agencies:
  • identification and signature of the technical manager and superior (management);
  • registration number.
  1. Be issued by private institutions:
  • signed by the responsible technician with the number of the class council;
  • note of Technical Responsibility (ART) on the report issued.

Still in the Simplified Indemnity System, the claimant for damage by formal agriculture can choose between three options, as provided for in the sentences of the 12th Federal Court:

  1. Request the production of a new report, sending all the documents described in the court decision, notably the accounting documentation that proves the alleged damage, according to the sentence.
  2. Request that the proposal be prepared considering the values determined in the previously prepared (pre-existing) Synergia report, if the claimant has it.
  3. Request reclassification to the same informal category, if you have difficulties in following the two options above or if options 1 and 2 are not the most favorable for you.

The sentence clearly establishes that the affected person who opts for the report will receive compensation in the exact terms set out in the document. The latest version of the report produced will always be used.

PIM/AFE System

In the PIM/AFE System, for the use of a report for valuation, in addition to the presentation of formal accounting documents that show the losses resulting from the collapse, it is necessary to produce a report, and a pre-existing report is not accepted. By December 2021, Fundação Renova had paid BRL 8.71 billion in compensation and financial aid to more than 363,500 people. Of this amount, R$ 4.71 billion were paid to those affected in Espírito Santo.
