Insurance of weather and climaterelated disaster risk


The study builds on the EU Adaptation Strategy (EC, 2013) and the Green Paper on the insurance of natural and man-made disasters (EC, 2013), and addresses the objective of encouraging the use of insurance to manage weather and climate-related disaster risk. More specifically, the study supports the EU Adaptation Strategy through: (1) Increasing the knowledge base by collecting and providing information with regards to insurance coverage, mechanisms and cost-effectiveness, including preventive capacity; (2) Increasing awareness, promoting further action and defining the next steps in insuring extreme weather events.
