Climate risks - AXA Papers No.4 and IPSOS Survey

Apr 10, 2012

This paper aims to discuss the risks associated with climate and their potential evolution from an insurance perspective. Firstly, it covers the latest scientific evidence on observed climate evolution, as well as available projections. Climate change and associated changes in natural catastrophe patterns are a key challenge for the sustainability of the insurance industry. Therefore, insurers must monitor, even more than they did in the past, all climate risks.
