This is a belated progress report. Apologies for the great delay, as I have been
swamped by other work on climate change, and a few parts of the CII project itself.
Fiona Andrews has moved from CII to another organisation. Susan Divall will now be the
project co-ordinator. Susan and I havd already had one useful meeting to plan in detail
how we go forward.
Andrew Howie at CII is supporting the project, and has already started to send out
chapters for review.
CII has also confirmed that there will be a printed version of the full report. They
need our guidance on numbers and recipients ( see action, below).
Apart from the full report, there will be a summary version with key points and
recommendations, aimed at the CII faculties. I will draft that on the bass of the full
Clearly we have slipped, and it looks like launch will be early November. The exact
format will depend on the messages we have in the report.

* I will give a resume of the project on July 10th at the CII's underwriting day.
* ABI are currently working with Lloyd's on a project called something like principles of
climate insurance. They intend a launch on September 13.
* UNFCCC is actively looking at how to involve insurance in the climate change
negotiations. They are holding a workshop on June 20th in London. I am chairing a
session on adaptation, and there is a session on mitigation (energy industries etc).
* UN has developed a 3-week elearning course on finance and climate change, with a focus
on the energy sector, from the viewpoint of insurers, banks and asset management.I
habve just finished being a mentor for 2 weeks.
1 Who do you think the CII report should be sent to? Please be specific, in terms of
numbers and organisations.
