About this talk

Insurers in Canada are looking for creative ways to motivate homeowners to better protect themselves against floods and water damage by investing in the resilience of their properties as despite the availability of incentives and educational resources, risk awareness and preparedness remains low. This webinar will explore the opportunities and challenges for growing resilience by showcasing a recent case study by TD Insurance regarding a recent pilot with the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction on a new approach to homeowner education. Speakers include: • Huma Pabani, Director, Environment & National Issues, Government & Industry Relations at TD Insurance • Vic Adamowicz, University of Alberta and TDI Advisory Board on Climate Change • Paul Kovacs, Executive Director at Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
