Title: The Nexus of Climate Data, Insurance, and Adaptive Capacity
Author(s): Robert Erhardt*
Companies: Wake Forest University

We present the background and outcomes from a recent interdisciplinary workshop “The Nexus of Climate Data, Insurance, and Adaptive Capacity” which was held in November 2018 at The Collider in Asheville, NC. The workshop facilitated a national, interdisciplinary scientific research discussion on modeling and managing climate change risks between three different but related research communities: the climate modeling and data community, statisticians, and researchers within the insurance and reinsurance industries. The workshop was aimed at active scientific researchers in each community, with the goal of sharing perspectives, methods, and databases; defining gaps of existing research; and formation of actionable research paths which can only be addressed by teams which are new, collaborative and interdisciplinary. Co-sponsors were the Society of Actuaries (SOA), the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Statistics and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI).

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
