Against the backdrop of the 21st UN Climate Change Conference (COP21), due to take place in Paris in December 2015, the SCOR Corporate Foundation for Science, in conjunction with the Toulouse School of Economics and the Geneva Association, will hold the SCOR Foundation seminar on climate risks on 9 and 10 June 2015.

This seminar will bring together climatologists, economists, modellers, actuaries and insurance and reinsurance industry professionals to discuss two major topics: the modelling and forecasting of climatic events (on 9 June), and the insurability of these events (on 10 June).
These two days will be split into four half-day sessions, each of which is described in detail below.






What do we know so far on climate change and climate risks at different timescales ?

Climate risk modelling

How to model climate risks and natural catastrophes in a context of changing climate ?


How can economic sciences help us make good decisions in a context of climate uncertainty ?

Policy Making and climate risks insurability

How can we improve the insurability of climate risks, and how can (re)insurers contribute to economic resilience in case of Natcat events ?
