  Agriculture

Climate change, natural catastrophes and a rising need for food security have spurred the recent growth in agricultural insurance around the globe. In 2009, Allianz Re has set up an agricultural insurance team in its Swiss office whose experts are providing reinsurance cover to clients across the globe.

Predicting the Unpredictable

Demographic shifts, increasing global interdependencies and climate change all play  a role in weather-related insurance losses.  Such losses have increased 15-fold over the last few decades, implying high risk and volatility for the insurance industry.  Mitigating against this requires a distinct catastrophe risk management approach.

Fostering renewable energy and addressing climate-related risks

Renewable technologies are expanding at an ever faster rate and have become competitive with conventional energy sources in many parts of the world.  At the same time, climate impacts become more visible and are particularly affecting developing countries that lack adequate financial buffer to cope with the consequences.
