Weekly News Update – 19 January

Hello Everyone,

Likely the greatest problem facing the world today is Climate Change. Some experts are even of the opinion that it was the abuse of our environment that caused the spread of COVID-19 from animals to humans.  As actuaries, this is one of our major concerns. Environmental degradation leads to a myriad of problems which we must address.

Climate Change led the programme at our Annual Conference last December:

Our Keynote Session was a Round Table Discussion led by the Hon. Mia Amor Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados:
