Tackle challenges of climate change

#MRDataThon - A DataThon by Munich Re



The consequences of climate change are diverse and are impacting the insurance industry. Physical changes resulting from regional shifts in weather patterns are one of the consequences of great relevance to reinsurance. It is clear that the situation is grave not only for scientists and politicians, but that massive challenges resulting from climate change are ahead for the insurance industry as well.
