Cities at risk – Building a resilient future for the world’s urban centres

Source(s):  Lloyd's

This new Lloyd’s report commissioned before COVID-19 provides a comprehensive analysis of the risks cities are facing and will face in the future. It looks at their impacts and how urban areas can protect themselves from these threats. 

It also suggests ways in which insurers and the relevant authorities could work together to build resilience, reduce risks and develop new insurance products and services that meet cities’ risk needs.

This study helps city administrators and risk managers, as well as Lloyd’s market insurers and brokers, understand the risks that will influence the design and function of cities in the coming decade, and how insurance product development could respond to these changes.

The report also provides with key findings related to 7 major aspects: 

  1. The trends shaping cities
  2. Future risks facing cities
  3. The role insurance can play in protecting cities
  4. Barriers preventing cities from buying insurance
  5. Next steps for insurers and city officials
  6. Understanding the insurance industry’s role
  7. Ideas for products development
