This webinar will discuss the topic of global opportunities and challenges for the actuarial profession from societal risks. In particular it will focus on climate change and other aspects of sustainability (e.g. bio-diversity) and why our profession should extend itself to these areas.
Viewpoints will be expressed by a geographically diverse panel – UK, Australia, Canada and US. The presentations are also intended to provide (i) a sense of how the IAA member organizations are bringing climate change and other societal risks in the work of the actuary and (ii) other efforts reflecting public good e.g. participation in national forums/conversations on the topics.
