Item #d96jun87

Improving Responses to Atmospheric Extremes: The Role of Insurance and Compensation, J. McCulloch, Ed., ca. 150 pp., 1995, $10 (Clim. Inst.).

Proceedings from a workshop (Toronto, Oct. 1994). Damage from floods, tropical storms and drought is rising faster than from earthquakes, a finding that fits well with predictions of climate models and supports the thesis that the climate is changing. Vulnerability to natural hazards depends upon several socioeconomic factors, as well as time of day, week and year. Adaptation in some sectors, such as agriculture, may be inhibited by government programs. In the building sector, inadequate construction codes, or lack of enforcement can contribute to damage. The roles of the insurance industry and government are discussed.


Item #d96jun88

Climate Change and the Financial Sector: The Emerging Threat, The Solar Solution, J. Leggett, Ed., Mar. 1996, $26 (Gerling Group). (See News, this Digest issue--June 1996.)
