About this event
Damage caused by flood events is expected to rise in the coming decades driven by increased land use pressures and climate change impacts. Strategies developed to increase flood resilience are sought across the world to reduce the impact of current and future flood events. Within this context, the Re(insurance) industry plays a key role in securing property flood resilience by for example, promoting the availability and affordability of household insurance for eligible homes.
Following a successful workshop on “Property Flood Resilience and the Insurance Sector”, we would like to run a follow up session looking at the links between climate change, resilience and the Re(insurance) industry. This workshop focuses on identifying successful strategies driven by or linked to the Re(insurance) sector that have successfully increased flood resilience. We are particularly interested to hear about strategies looking at (i) building back better homes after a flood, (ii) promoting a change of attitude, (iii) enhancing flood risk communication, (iv) developing data standards for flood models and (v) pricing models that take into account flood resistance measures.
The morning session will include a set of presentations by subject matter experts follow by a networking session.
Our event will be held in the Old Library, The Lloyd's Building, One Lime Street, London.
