Uganda has in the past decade been plagued by frequent natural disasters often leading to massive loss of lives, property, massive displacements and generally disempowerment.For instance in 2010 alone landslides killed about 250 people and over 8,500 affected. During the course of the same year floods affected over 350,000 people. However little has been done in dealing with the aftermath of these catastrophes and an attempt is made in this research to explore the possibility of compensation through comprehensive first party natural disaster insurance schemes, to mitigate the effects of these Natural disasters. whereas comprehensive first party Natural disaster Insurance may not be overstated as a panacea to combat the devastating effects of natural disasters and as the only hope for the victims, just like no single insurance policy including those that have existed since time immemorial have ever been the ultimate remedy to events covered, comprehensive first party natural disaster insurance as I advance for it is not a one size fit all but only a viable option that warrants exploration in Uganda to supplement government efforts in mitigating the effects of Natural disasters.

Insurance Systems in Times of Climate Change
117,69 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Natural disasters such as large-scale flooding are on the increase. Climate change directly affects our basis of existence. This includes residential buildings, and commercial and industrial properties. The author highlights the requirements that will have to be met by a protection system for buildings in the future. Insurance against natural hazards lies at the heart of such a system. The insurance systems of Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland and the USA are presented. The author explains what type of insurance system is best suited to meet the challenge of climate change. The starting point of the legal section is statutory insurance with amonopoly. The question of whether such insurance is compatible with Swiss and EU law is examined. Keywords in this respect are economic freedom, competition, services of general interest and universal service.

1. THE PROBLEM OF CATASTROPHE RISK The risk of large losses from natural disasters in the U.S. has significantly increased in recent years, straining private insurance markets and creating troublesome problems for disaster-prone areas. The threat of mega-catastrophes resulting from intense hurricanes or earthquakes striking major population centers has dramatically altered the insurance environment. Estimates of probable maximum losses (PMLs) to insurers from a mega catastrophe striking the U.S. range up to $100 billion depending on the location and intensity of the event (Applied Insurance Research, 2001).1 A severe disaster could have a significant financial impact on the industry (Cummins, Doherty, and Lo, 2002, Insurance Services Office, 1996a). Estimates of industry gross losses from the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 range from $30 billion to $50 billion, and the attack's effect on insurance markets underscores the need to understand the dynamics of the supply of and the demand for insurance against extreme events, including natural disasters. Increased catastrophe risk poses difficult challenges for insurers, reinsurers, property owners and public officials (Kleindorfer and Kunreuther, 1999). The fundamental dilemma concerns insurers' ability to handle low-probability, high-consequence (LPHC) events, which generates a host of interrelated issues with respect to how the risk of such events are 1 These probable maximum loss (PML) estimates are based on a SOD-year "return" period.

Tourism is highly vulnerable to climate change while at the same time contributing to it. Threats for the sector are diverse, including direct and indirect impacts such as extreme weather events, increasing insurance costs and safety concerns, water shortages, biodiversity loss and damage to assets and attractions at destinations, among others. Continued climate-driven degradation and disruption to cultural and natural heritage will negatively affect the tourism sector, reduce the attractiveness of destinations and lessen economic opportunities for local tribal communities, as natural and cultural resources are the foundation for the tourism sector's competitiveness.
