European Commission's Green Paper on insurance of natural and man-made disasters

Insurance Europe welcomes the opportunity to comment on the European Commission’s Green Paper on the insurance of natural and man-made disasters. Insurance Europe strongly supports the Commission’s aim in promoting (re)insurance as one tool of disaster management and the Commission’s recent contributions toward fostering a general culture of disaster risk prevention and mitigation across the EU. The latter is principally reflected by the EU Adaptation Strategy launched in April this year as well as by the Commission’s efforts in recognising the value of risk awareness through various seminars, working groups and conferences.
