What are catastrophe models? How are they used by the insurance industry to manage risk? How can they serve the wider risk and disaster reduction community to mitigate and manage risk? How should such approaches help to reduce the claim of so many quote "unexpected" disasters.

In this webinar, Associate Professor Joanna Faure Walker will introduce you to catastrophe models so you can start to think how you might use them to reduce the impact from disasters.
