The iInsurance market place as a nexus for catalyzing synergisms between climate change mitigation and adaptation
The insurance industry is both a barometer of the changing climate and a market actor that can play a material role in decreasing the vulnerability of human and natural systems to weather-related natural disasters while simultaneously supporting both its own marker-based objectives and the objectives of sustainable development generally, and mitigation and adaptation measures in the context of global climate change in particular. The insurance sector has significant capacity and ability to spread the risks and manage the costs of weather-related events, more so today in industrialised countries but increasingly so in developing countries and economies in transition.
