IDF 5th Anniversary White Paper by Rowan Douglas
The Insurance Development Forum After 5 years: Renewed vision and growing ambition towards stewardship of a Resilience Climate Transition
As the Insurance Development Forum (IDF) celebrates its fifth anniversary, Rowan Douglas, Chair of the IDF Operating Committee, and Head of the Climate and Resilience Hub at Willis Towers Watson, reflects on the achievement of its original vision and prompts a discussion on expanding ambitions to meet the challenges of the Climate Decade.
The IDF’s public private platform can help insurance to once again play an essential role in managing phases of major economic and social transition. Insurance expertise, the IDF’s membership and status and the momentum of COP26 Glasgow, provide an unprecedented opportunity for the industry and its partners to define the central role for insurers as stewards of the whole economy transition towards a Net Zero and climate resilient future.
