Government, Insurance and Alternatives
China is the largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world and also suffers from devastating climate catastrophes.

This book contends that a better way to manage catastrophe risk in China is through private insurance rather than directly through the Chinese government. In addition, private insurance could function as a substitute for, or complement to, government regulation of catastrophe risks by causing policyholders to take greater precautions to reduce climate change risks.
