Climate Change and Insurance

The Geneva Association is pleased to announce a special October 2025 issue of The Geneva Papers on Risk and Insurance – Issues and Practice on Climate Change and Insurance.

The journal welcomes submissions on a broad range of topics related to climate change and insurance, including but not limited to:

  • The role of AI, stochastic and system-based approaches for modelling climate-related financial risks and their implications for the insurance industry
  • Insurability challenges for losses resulting from extreme weather events in a changing climate, including social, economic and financial implications, and how to address them
  • Behavioural science interventions and public-private collaborations to mitigate underinsurance in the event of higher insurance premiums, especially for lower socioeconomic populations
  • How the insurance sector can incentivise climate risk reduction, risk prevention and adaptation strategies among various stakeholders
  • Innovative insurance solutions for building climate resilience through cross-sectoral partnerships (e.g. between governments, the insurance industry, civil society and the private sector)
  • The role of the insurance sector in helping accelerate decarbonisation, including by mobilising capital for climate technologies and through public-private collaboration to drive conducive policies and regulations
  • Environmental risks and related liabilities associated with the value chain of mature and emerging climate technologies
  • Methods for assessing the carbon footprint (specifically Scope 3) of the insurance industry

Interdisciplinary and cross-collaborative works are strongly encouraged, as well as empirical studies with direct implications for insurers and policymakers.
