Summary: In the opening sections of the review we examine the themes of climate change and resource depletion and consider the impacts these issues may have for actuaries. Subsequently we review 21 papers on a range of topics and have organised them into six subject areas: Concepts; Current Status of Resources; Current Status of Climate Science; Economic Responses; Institutional Investment Issues; and Risk Management and Uncertainty. Each review provides a summary of the paper, a critique and then some consideration of the actuarial implications and the importance of the paper.

Summary: Climate change and resource depletion are likely to result in unprecedented changes to the economic and social environment in which actuaries work. Whilst there is a mass of scientific and more general literature, the financial implications have received less attention. This review - the first in an ongoing series - aims to provide actuaries with summaries of papers relevant to their work and the significant risk management challenges they pose. The review considers a series of risks that could affect the assets, liaibilities and solvency of the world's financial institutions. Not only are there challenges; there are opportunities for actuaries. Our training in model building, interpreting stochastic model output, managing uncertainty and risk, in understanding the long term nature of assets and liabilities, the inter-generational transfer of wealth through the discount rate mechanism and deep understanding of insurance put us in an ideal position to contribute to the global policy debate.

Climate and Sustainability
Author(s): University of Copenhagen — Source:Year Published: 2009
Summary: Past societies have reacted when they understood that their own activities were causing deleterious environmental change by controlling or modifying the offending activities. The scientific evidence has now become overwhelming that human activities, especially the combustion of fossil fuels, are influencing the climate in ways that threaten the well-being and continued development of human society. If humanity is to learn from history and to limit these threats, the time has come for stronger control of the human activities that are changing the fundamental conditions for life on Earth. To decide on effective control measures, an understanding of how human activities are changing the climate, and of the implications of unchecked climate change, needs to be widespread among world and national leaders, as well as in the public. The purpose of this report is to provide, for a broad range of audiences, an update of the newest understanding of climate change caused by human activities, the social and environmental implications of this change, and the options available for society to respond to the challenges posed by climate change.
