Abstract

Climate change is likely to cause extreme weather events in the world with the consequence of an increased number of natural catastrophes. The expected damages pose serious challenges to governments in terms of policy choice and a crucial point is to define the role can be played by insurance sector, particularly as a tool to reduce potential damage, as well as to stimulate mitigation. Scientific research and good knowledge of risk are necessary in guiding policy decisions to manage the risks deriving from climate change. In this direction, the author analyses the fact that risks connected with climate change and the potential contribution of the insurance sector need to be analysed by scientific research in order to plan the correct risk management strategies in the future.
