About World Forum of Catastrophe Programmes


In 2006, a group of senior executives of several national disaster schemes met during the Centenary Conference of the San Francisco Earthquake. It was agreed unanimously that the discussions they had were sufficiently valuable to continue at an annual World Forum of Catastrophe Insurance Schemes.

The Consorcio de Compensacion de Seguros hosted in Madrid the second World Forum meeting in September 2007 and several additional schemes were represented there, including the world’s first international programme, the Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility.

Further meetings have been held in Iceland (June 2008) and Taiwan in September 2009, to mark the tenth anniversary of the Chi Chi earthquake, where fourteen schemes were represented.

The World Forum’s aims are to learn from each other’s knowledge and experience and to make this available to new and emerging schemes and their sponsors. As much can be learned from differences as from similarities. Encouragement is given to concentrate on concrete problems and issues and not to deal so much with abstract or academic matters.

The 2010 meeting of the World Forum will be held in Bucharest, Romania, on 12-13 October.

Taking this chance, we proudly announce the extraordinary participation of the World Forum of Catastrophe Programmes representatives at the 2010 edition of ICAR-International CAtastrophic Risks Forum, for a valuable experience exchange.
