    Bringing together leading figures in innovative finance and recognised experts in natural hazards, this multi-contributor guide will help the Asian insurance and financial markets ensure that catastrophe risk is underwritten and managed effectively.

    Catastrophes have had a more devastating impact on insurers over the past 15 years than in the entire history of insurance. Despite its rapidly developing economies and cutting-edge technological base, catastrophes particularly blight the Asian continent. Natural hazards such as earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, typhoons and volcanoes affect the whole region, from the simplest to the most complex infrastructures, and both the new engines of growth and the largest Asian economies. Consequently Asia, especially China, India and Japan, constitutes a major growing market for catastrophe insurance.

    This comprehensive book presents a range of perspectives on natural hazards risk and alternative risk transfer (ART) from academia (such as Beijing, Kyoto and Cambridge universities), government (including the World Bank and Secretary of Agriculture and Cooperation, Government of India) and industry leaders (see table of contents for the list of contributors). 

    Risk management in Asia requires a solid understanding of the potential for catastrophic events, the vulnerability of the human, built and economic environments to these events, and the potential for reducing impacts through integrated and properly financed programs. This book focuses on some of the most significant natural hazards such as a tsunami, floods and the natural hazard likely to have the world’s largest future financial impact, a Tokyo earthquake. With its breadth of in-depth, expert perspectives it will help you:

    • learn from recent catastrophes;
    • explore technological directions for enhanced modelling performance;
    • increase your integration with enterprise IT systems and identify opportunities for improved data management;
    • assess, underwrite and manage catastrophe risk more effectively.
