Climate Change and Life Insurance Implications

Climate change impacts the fundamentals of human existence: water, air, food and shelter. 

RGA's Dr. Georgiana Willwerth-Pascutiu and Senior Biometric Insights Actuary Chris Falkous explore the effects of suboptimal temperatures on mortality and estimate impacts under various climate pathways. The pair also touch on roles policymakers, individuals, and the insurance industry can play in mitigating climate risks.
