On Wednesday 25 April 2018, Clyde & Co welcomed a wide range of speakers and an audience from insurance, resilience management, construction and engineering and government to discuss the impact of climate change and urbanisation on the protection gap.
2017 was one of the worst years in recent memory for natural disasters with hurricanes and wildfires causing significant disruption and damage. With only 30% of natural disasters in the developed world covered by insurance and less than 10% in the developing world, the event examined how resilience management and risk mitigation could close the substantial protection gap.
We have produced a summary of the event which gives an overview of the presentations with links to video footage and speakers’ slides. If you would like a copy please click to download.
