Government and market collaboration to reduce the gap between economic and insured loss after disasters is critical. Urbanization, climate change, and changing geo-political forces are increasing the frequency and severity of natural (e.g. earthquakes) and manmade (e.g. terrorism) disasters. The economic losses have outstripped insured losses by a staggering $1.3 trillion over the last 10 years, creating huge burdens for countries globally. Many public-private initiatives have been established to reduce this protection gap, but what is their value? This event will present the findings from our study of the Protection Gap Entities (PGEs) established globally to respond to this problem in both developed and emerging economies.
The presentation will be followed by summer drinks and canapes reception for all guests.
