Description:

SCOR’s expert Xiao Gao, epidemiologist, will examine existing and emerging infectious diseases and analyse their interplay with climate change and health. Changes in ecosystems, such as higher temperatures, rainfall variability, storms, droughts, floods, forest fires and heat waves, trigger changes in the epidemiology of many diseases.
 
Claire Booth from Milliman will present a methodology for modelling mortality in France and in the United States with a Lee-Carter model integrating the climatic risk generated by heat waves and allowing to determine mortality shocks.
