Workshop on risk perception and insurance in the context of climate change

Date: 10 May 2010

As part of the Munich Re research programme

The workshop aimed to foster an exchange of knowledge in the area of the impact of risk perception on the demand for insurance in an environment of changing risk levels.

The workshop was held as part of work programme E of the Munich Re Programme at the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP).

This work programme aims to explore the risks from climate change in emerging economies and the implications for the financial services industry, in particular, insurance.

The LSE research explores how a changing climate might influence the demand for insurance and how this could be captured by insurance demand models.
