IDF Members’ and Partners’ Events

Come and join the in-person London Climate Action Week Resilience and Adaptation Summit, organised by the Insurance Development Forum and E3G, and hosted by Howden, for London Climate Action Week 2023

Hear from leading experts and join the debate on how the power of the London re/insurance market, combined with the strengths of the global resilience community, can act as a powerful force in driving resilience and adaptation action and contribute to the London Climate Hub.

Drawing on advances in modelling climate risks with the latest trends in financial disclosure, resilience investment, humanitarian response, disaster risk financing, nature-based solutions and loss and damage, this event will help attendees connect to the rapid mainstreaming of risk and resilience across public and private sectors.
