Climate QuantifiedTM: Parametrics From Coral Reefs to Credit Risk: Nature-Related Risks and the Protective Role of Parametric Insurance

Details

September 20
9:00 am - 11:30 am EDT
Add to Calendar September 20 9:00 am September 20 11:30 am America/New_York Climate QuantifiedTM: Parametrics From Coral Reefs to Credit Risk: Nature-Related Risks and the Protective Role of Parametric Insurance

Join us for a morning panel session, hosted with the Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance, where we will explore nature-related risks and the protective role of insurance.

It is increasingly understood that climate change is damaging the planet’s ecosystems, from forests to oceans. At the same time, strong, healthy ecosystems can help us to fight climate change as well as build resilience and support us in adapting to its impacts. Coordinated action is required to deploy effective, cross-cutting approaches to this complex challenge.

In this session, we will be joined by Karen Sack, Executive Director of the Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance (ORRAA), and other partners. Our panel discussion will delve into how insurance enhances the role that each actor plays (from policymaker to financier to service provider) to deploy tools and techniques that can unlock and protect the value of natural capital and associated ecosystem services.

Hosted by WTW, we will showcase successful projects that demonstrate the added value that the insurance industry can contribute to design innovative yet practical solutions and help create a more resilient planet.
