African Risk Capacity ▪ Inspired by CCRIF, a mutual of African countries covering drought ▪ Again donor funded, paying far more quickly that tradition aid, save lives and livelihoods ▪ Includes specific capacity building ▪ Early warning software, Risk management process, contingency planning requirements ▪ Recent innovation: policy replication to insure post event efficiency NGO/government The Catastrophe Insurance market is strong: ▪ Big investment in science, modelling, risk/hazard understanding over 30 years ▪ We now have a problem – too much capital chasing too few traditional risks ▪ So catastrophe reinsurance has never been cheaper (despite climate change) ▪ Historically Catastrophe Insurance has focussed on property loss, but the scope is far wider, e.g. disaster response © 2018 Willis Towers Watson.

  7. 7. willistowerswatson.com Philippines City Disaster Insurance Pool (PCDIP) Cities themselves decide what cover they wish to buy Initially there are two hazards covered: ▪ Tropical cyclone (wind speed) ▪ Earthquake (ground shaking) Flood and excess rainfall will be added when modelling/data is available For each hazard cities can chose: ▪ The probability of events leading to minimum and maximum pay-outs ▪ The required amounts of those minimum and maximum pay-outs ▪ OR they can see how much cover a set level of premium would buy
  8. 8. willistowerswatson.com Tailoring to city-specific needs Note: Premium excludes Documentary Stamp Tax Annual premium Cost of the targeted insurance coverage Event severity How often the policy can be expected to pay, on average Minimum payout Minimum payout if the policy is triggered Insurance limit Maximum payout available under the policy Peril Earthquake and/or Tropical Cyclone

  13. 13. willistowerswatson.com Disaster Risk Insurance for the Poor Protecting the most vulnerable The poor may have least to lose in terms of assets but often are the worst hit in terms of loss of life, shelter and livelihood The poor are invariably uninsured and have limited capacity to pay premium Fiji Sub-bronze scheme ▪ Part of a programme to address market failure to cover sub-standard housing and the families living in them ▪ Bronze scheme: WTW working with Word Bank to define an insurance scheme to cover property not built to code ▪ Sub-bronze scheme: WTW working with IFC covering families in housing with no insurable value, aim for launch on 1st November 2018 ▪ Payments made if a tropical cyclone hits their province: payment increases for winds of categories 3, 4 and 5 by local scale Philippines Catastrophe Insurance Pool (PCIP) ▪ WTW has been working to design a domestic property/SME scheme inspired by the Turkish TCIP scheme, PCIP ▪ Recent political pressure has been to add an insurance for the poor element, work progresses on renamed PCRIP scheme R4 Crop Insurance Scheme ▪ WTW working with World Food Program in Ethiopia to design and protect an insurance scheme to cover small scale farmers ▪ Scheme aims to link insurance to improvements in farming practice and inputs: increasing resilience and prosperity ▪ Includes innovative “work for premium” feature 13 © 2018 Willis Towers Watson.

  14. 14. willistowerswatson.com Conservation and Disaster Risk Reduction Insurance: Incentivising sustainable behavior ▪ Insurance premiums are fundamentally risk responsive, i.e. the financial mechanism that rewards investments in resilience ▪ Risk-sensitive financial tools provide funding for recovery after an event and also incentivise the development of contingency plans that wrap around risk transfer solutions ▪ Risk transfer can also create incentives to reduce risk by rewarding investments to mitigate risks through reduced insurance cost, retained market value, and maintained access and use. ▪ Valuing natural capital infrastructure in monetary terms (e.g. as compared to grey infrastructure providing equivalent coastal protection) is critical first step to having protective qualities reflected in insurance pricing ▪ If models are responsive, pricing is responsive ▪ Insurance as reward ▪ E.g. COAST – parametric insurance product within the structure of CCRIF SPC promoting resilience of Caribbean coastal communities and fisheries against natural disaster risk ▪ This type of insurance would protect stakeholders against risk factors they cannot control as a ‘reward’ for agreements regarding those they can control, e.g. fisheries management, pollution, and conservation activities. ▪ Disaster Risk Reduction (or ‘building back better’) written into contingency plans 14 © 2018 Willis Towers Watson.

  16. 16. willistowerswatson.com Local Private Sector Opportunities Insurers ▪ Act as a fronting company for international markets, but as become more comfortable with risk, then retain more ▪ If a national catastrophe risk pool is created, manage/administrate/provide services to that pool ▪ Provide quota share capacity to the pool (eg Taiwan) ▪ Add additional cover to wrap around the base protection provided by a governmental pool (eg New Zealand) ▪ Use modelling and/or exposure data created by a national exercise to develop new products ▪ eg if government commissions open source catastrophe modelling for a scheme covering government assets could a local insurers offer cover to household, individuals and/or companies using this new modelling (eg ARC licence for development?) Service Providers ▪ Legal, accounting, loss adjusting etc services to new pool companies/schemes ▪ Captive/SPV services ▪ Modelling/data collection opportunities (eg PCDIP) ▪ Broaden and deepen existing insurance and insurance related services, creating a recognised regional insurance hub © 2018 Willis Towers Watson.
