MAPPING THE RISK – PREVENTING FLOOD-RELATED LOSSES
Beh Hiang JooManager, External Partner Training, Asia Pacific
Natthawut ManeelekEngineering (Flood) Specialist, Asia excluding Greater China
Global warming and rising sea level are well-documented and flood-related losses continue to mount across Asia. Efforts to combat climate change continue to gain pace, but will they be enough? While we muster the ambition to stop the rising tide, we can at least make sure that we’re ready.
This session forms a high-level dialogue between risk managers from public and private sectors with FM Global’s experts who will share their in-depth knowledge on flood mitigation practices as well as the insights gained working with clients to protect their facilities from the risks presented by flood across Asia.
The session will highlight several critical issues, including the severity of flood-related losses in Asia supported by real-life examples, and the importance of developing knowledge ahead of time given the unpredictable nature of flood occurrence. The session also aims to build further awareness among risk managers of the physical abatement and human interventions that are readily available.
This masterclass session is important for all risk managers because:
• Flood is a perennial issue in Thailand and many developing countries in Asia. Given the pressure placed on much of the continent’s infrastructure by population growth, the risk presented by flooding remains ever-present.
• There is an opportunity to improve the exchange of best practices to heighten awareness of loss prevention and risk mitigation solutions that address flood-related issues across Asia.
It is expected that at the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to identify practical actions to address and mitigate flood-related problems, leading to improved risk management practices and risk quality among the properties under their purview.

WHY INSURANCE IS CRITICAL TO DELIVERING A SUCCESSFUL
CONSTRUCTION AND INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT
The Masterclass will share methods of insuring Construction and Infrastructure projects and the key role insurance plays.
Insurance is intended to provide the Project Developer/Owner and the Contractor with a cost effective way of financing risks which they do not have the financial strength to bear themselves. All too often, the arrangement of insurance is regarded as an “administrative inconvenience” or simply being an exercise of being able to put a “tick in the box” of tasks completed.
However, it is not an exaggeration to state that arranging fit for purpose insurance coverage can be critical to the successful execution of any construction project, regardless of size and complexity.
Getting the right coverage from the insurance requires an adequate amount of attention during the early stages of the project’s development to ensure that the insurance being purchased provides the coverage needed.
Join our masterclass to learn how this can be achieved if the insurance is made to ‘dovetail’ with the risks inherent in the project, a task which requires a full understanding of commercial, financing, technical, and insurance matters.
