DSC Seminar | What’s climate change got to do with earthquake insurance? Extreme weather and the EQC
Extreme storms are likely to become stronger, more frequent and more damaging as our climate changes. These storms can cause real harm to communities and entire regions. Increasingly damaging extreme weather events also pose long-term sustainability challenges for public risk transfer mechanisms (such as the Earthquake Commission or EQC). This seminar with Ilan Noy (Victoria University of Wellington) will provide an overview of his research into climate change and the EQC.
