“When it comes to climate risk and resilience, there is critical work to be done in every state. It is a problem that state insurance regulators have prioritized for decades,” he explains. Mike Considine, CEO of NAIC. “Government insurance regulators have always been on the front lines of climate-related natural disaster preparedness and response, protecting policyholders and maintaining well-functioning insurance markets. We are very excited to be participating in this event to share our work and learn from others.”

State and NAIC insurance regulators have a long history focused on managing the risks facing the insurance industry and consumers. This includes addressing how natural hazards affect the solvency of the insured as well as the affordability and availability of insurance. In 2020, the organization and its members established the Climate and Resilience Task Force, recognizing the challenges, risks, and opportunities facing the entire insurance industry and the importance of engaging all nations on climate-related risk and resilience issues. Current and future efforts are based on decades of experience in managing the economic fallout of natural disasters. The nation’s insurance regulators are better able to address this multi-generational problem through teamwork and exchange of experience, both locally and internationally, to work toward a safer and more resilient future.
