Insurers are well-aware of the impacts of climate change, which include an increase in extreme weather events, resulting in property damage and increased liability risks. Case studies will be used to identify the liability and regulatory risks and impacts that climate change may have on local governments. What are the potential legal defences available to local governments when faced with claims, including those anticipated in the newly developing area of natural asset management? Risk management strategies applicable to local governments in the development of their climate change resiliency plans will be discussed.
