Resource and environment

Although we are increasingly enduring the disastrous effects of rapid technological and societal developments, such as recent severe weather events around the globe, the consequences of climate change are poorly understood by both the general public and policymakers around the world. Insufficient understanding of these risks and short-term thinking may result in putting current and future generations at further risk, with potential dire consequences.

With rapid changes from technological advancement, demographic shifts, and a resource-demanding standard of living in the developed world, we face a number of unprecedented global risks with the potential of severely affecting billions of people. Actuaries can draw upon their risk-management expertise to identify the potential range of environmental risks, both short and long-term, and the subsequent means for mitigating or adapting to them.
