Insurance – current trends and future threats
The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report issued a ‘code red’ to humanity – the tunnelling industry is not immune. Patrick Bravery will illustrate recent trends in insurance loss activity highlighting the significance of water related perils (storm, rainfall and flooding). Patrick will discuss the inherent exposure of civil engineering projects to such perils and contemplate potential control measures that could and should be put in place. Finally Patrick will share his views on the potential impact of climate change on the insurance industry and the implications this may have for the construction industry.
