Implementing Strategies for Resilient Societies

How are science-based analytics building more resilient societies? Discuss when to reduce and when to transfer risk, explore nature-based defenses, and redirect capital flows to protect public and private exposures.

HIDE SESSIONS AND TIMES
  • Implementing Resilience Strategies

    WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 | 9:15AM — 9:35AM (20 min)

    Prevention is better than cure – about four times better, in fact. But it isn’t always obvious whether building-level adaptation is better than regional; whether grey infrastructure is better than green, nature-based defenses. Let’s take a closer look at the situation in coastal Louisiana, asking what’s required to ensure the state’s Master Plan rises to the challenge.

  • Reduce, Retain, & Transfer: Three Routes to Resilience

    WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 | 9:35AM — 10:10AM (35 min)

    Pre-event resilience building fundamentally comes in three flavors. Which one is right for you? Are they mutually exclusive? Is the answer situation-dependent? Join the discussion with a panel of industry experts.

BREAK 9:55AM — 10:25AM
  • Stress Test Your Resilience to Water Scarcity

    WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 | 10:25AM — 10:45AM (20 min)

    Drought is a significant source of potential shock even to coastal communities. While there is a growing recognition that environmental stress testing is crucial to ensuring sustainable economies, there remains two common misconceptions: that sustained lack of water is primarily a problem for agriculture and that even then only locally. How well do we understand the extent to which a prolonged drought, even one in an adjacent region, would impact the local economy?

    WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 | 10:45AM — 11:05AM (20 min)

    Economic losses have tended to outstrip insured losses by 3 to 1. This is problematic on many levels, especially for the federal government, the insurer of last resort. Against this backdrop, what policies are gaining traction on Capitol Hill? Is talk of a FEMA deductible indicative of a wider federal government movement to better understand risk? What might this mean for the levels of protection a public body is expected to have in place? What are the implications for the private sector? Gain insights into how Congress and agencies in the Trump administration will assess – and regulate – which resilience strategies are prudent and economically efficient.

  • Disaster Aid and the Case for Insurance-Linked Securities

    WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 | 11:15AM — 11:40AM (25 min)

    The humanitarian aid spent on natural disasters from 2000-2015 ran at less than US$ 1.5 billionbn per annum. Sadly, over the same period, the run rate of economic losses from those same natural disasters was almost US$ 30 millionm. That’s a huge shortfall – every year. Some are advocating for risk transfer to step in and play a role. Do the numbers stack add up? Does investor appetite exist? Will those communities most in need be able to avail themselves of the capital? In this session, we'll assess the situation.

  • Top Tips When Engaging the Private Sector

    WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 | 11:40AM — 12:00PM (20 min)

    Public-private partnerships are full of promise. Learning from industry experts is core to increasing public sector resilience. But how do you select the right partners?

  • Towards the Resilient Enterprise: Corporate Risk Profiling

    WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 | 4:15PM — 4:35PM (20 min)

    Major corporations are some of the largest accounts in insurers’ portfolios, and their changing needs for insurance protection beyond natural catastrophe represents opportunity. Leading firms identify viability risk as a growing focus. Globalization has transformed the risk landscape, and firms are exposed to more systemic shocks. Emerging risks, in particular, pose major management concerns. For multinational corporations, identifying the sources of risk within their enterprise and associating its value lack a normalized and disciplined approach. A rigorous methodology to quantify the likelihoods and severities of their balance sheet risks in a comparative manner is needed. The Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge in the U.K. is carrying out research to the field of corporate risk profiling such that greater transparency can be achieved in a firm’s risk exposure and ultimately improve a firm’s insurance purchasing strategy.

    THURSDAY, MARCH 23 | 11:10AM — 11:30AM (20 min)

    Location is at the heart of risk management.  The ability to precisely pinpoint locational latitude and longitude can significantly impact overall risk level. However, geocoding is largely taken for granted as upcoming models will rely on an accurate geocode. If this first step in the catastrophe modeling process is done incorrectly, subsequent analytics and major business decisions will be affected. This session, presented by Andy Siffert of BMS Re US, will provide insight into the impact the geocode has on estimating risk levels and the subsequent decision-making by underwriters, product managers, marketers, and reinsurance buyers.
