About this session:
Scholars and policymakers have argued that insurance can shape behavior in ways that mitigate climate risks, such as by providing financial incentives to property owners to safeguard their property from increasingly intense hurricanes or from the risk of sea-level rise. But natural ecosystems like coral reefs, mangroves, and forest ecosystems can themselves protect property from these increased climate risks.  This presentation will explore the circumstances under which it is possible to insure nature itself in order to preserve these critical ecosystem services in the face of a changing climate.
