Weathering the Storm: The Aftermath of Natural Catastrophes. Understanding the Impact on Marine Losses and Other Vulnerable Sectors.

A panel of insurance experts will discuss the effects of the environmental catastrophes that recently rocked the United States. The panelists will explore the claims environment, models, and resinsurance, with emphasis on Marine losses. After an overview of the principles of Maritime Law and claims, the panel will discuss how climate change has amplified the risks associated with marine losses and other vulnerable sectors and offer recommendations on how to effectively prepare before the next storm.
