Recent Developments in Climate Risk Scenario Analysis
Methodologies on Climate Scenario Analysis for insurers have been developing rapidly over the last years. Ongoing attention by all stakeholders, pilot exercises all over the world and a substantial increase in awareness towards climate-related risks have incited insurers to develop and refine their stress testing capabilities on climate-related risks.
In this session, we will talk about the latest developments and challenges for maturing climate risk stress testing frameworks for insurers. We will talk about the set-up of physical and transition risk scenarios, common techniques for selecting, merging, and enhancing suitable scenario variables, as well as practical approaches for impact quantification and their difficulties in application.
Organised by the EAA – European Actuarial Academy GmbH
The web session is open to all interested persons working within the insurance industry, with a particular focus on risk managers faced with climate change risk assessments. Preliminary knowledge in climate risk is helpful, but not a prerequisite.
