Abstract

Natural disasters, especially weather related disasters have increased dramatically over the past decades. The latest IPCC report of 2007 does not provide an "all clear". At the opposite, signs point to severe weather. Only immediate and globally coordinated action can contain climate change and the related impacts. In this connection protection measures are as important as disaster preparedness. Insurance can be much more than just a tool for financial damage compensation. - (IfL)
