"The rich will find their world to be more expensive, inconvenient, uncomfortable, disrupted, and colourless - in general, more unpleasant and unpredictable, perhaps greatly so. The poor will dies" (Kirk R. Smith, 2008).

This report employs the Climate Risk Diamond framework to examine the climate change risks facing the global insurance industry and avenues open to it to secure advantage. Whether and how these are being addressed is considered using real-world insurance industry examples from around the globe. Client: Zurich Financial Services Australia
A new Climate Risk Report, comissioned by WWF-Australia, shows Australia can successfully transform to a low carbon economy at less than half the cost the Federal Government has spent on the stimulus package in the past six months. The total investment required between 2010 and 2050 to deploy sufficient low-carbon energy generation to power Australia would be about AUD $28.3billion.

This report identifies seven major opportunities for Australia to reduce or avoid the release of greenhouse gas emissions by almost five per cent or around 27 million carbon tonnes per year by 2015 and deliver more than $AUD6.6 billion annually in cost savings to businesses and households.
The report titled, “Evaluating Clean Energy Public Finance Mechanisms” by sustainability and cleantech strategy consultancy Irbaris and investor-focused non-profit organization, the Climate Bonds Initiative developed a methodology to highlight leading practices in the design and delivery of clean energy public finance mechanisms.
First-of-its-kind analysis answers key climate change question: How long to deliver low-carbon economy? London, 19th Oct 2009 – Climate Risk (Europe) Ltd today launched results that aim to answer the question: how long will it take clean-tech industries to deliver a low-carbon economy? The results of the major modelling project indicate that only a five-year window remains to get all low-carbon industries onto an accelerated growth path. The first-of-its-kind analysis, commissioned by international environmental organization WWF, shows that the most critical constraint to avoiding runaway climate change will be the time required to grow low-carbon industries. To avoid dangerous warming of more than 2°C, global low-carbon re-industrialisation will have to be underway before 2014, the modeling finds. Download report here .
Climate Risk organised and convened a rapid response invitation only expert summit to address the implications of climate change to the future of infrastructure risk and effective insurance in Australia. Support for the summit was given by our project partners: Zurich Financial Services; Evans & Peck; Infrastructure Partnerships Australia and Mallesons Stephen Jaques. Summit findings and presentations are being collated and will be distributed as a report for summit attendees shortly.
This work was commissioned by Council to identify the high level climate change hazards, exposure and vulnerability faced by our area. The risks identified for Moreton Bay Regional Council are similar to risks faced by many other coastal urban regions nationally and globally. While the report is an initial scoping, it provides a sound scientific basis from which more detailed risk analyses can be developed and provides a strong foundation to develop a climate change adaptation plan. The report also gives future direction for the Council through its twelve recommendations

The following report contains adaptation actions for risks identified in the Logan City Council and Scenic Rim Regional Council Climate Change Risk Assessment. This report is in part funded by the Australian Government as part of the Local Adaptation Pathway Program (LAPP).
The Report includes a climate change overview, a prioritised list of climate change risks, a discussion of the risks and recommended steps in moving forward to adaptation. The Report highlights the importance of the Council, as a responsible custodian of our local area, understanding and managing climate change risk to build our local resilience to climate change.
This report reviews more than 200 research papers to assemble a clear and consistent picture of climatic risk to this important animal group and eco-system indicator, illustrated with numerous examples and case studies. This report provides an interesting overview of how climate change may impact on conservation assets.
