This webinar will present the key issues discussed in the IAA Resource and Environment Working Group’s discussion paper, entitled “Climate Change, Insurance and Vulnerable Populations”. The objective of this webcast is to provide relevant information to actuarial and other practitioners regarding the insurance methods used to protect key risks associated with climate change, focusing on those who are most affected. Private and public-sector insurance programs can be used to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change on the health and resources of those who are most vulnerable – not only those in the least developed countries, but many in the developed world as well. This includes the use of microinsurance and multi-national risk pools.
