In other news, a new report has warned that insured losses from floods doubled to $80 billion globally during 2011-2020 compared to the previous decade, but insurance penetration lingered at just 18 percent.

The report, produced by the Swiss Re Institute, found that insurance coverage has remained dangerously low, despite climate change driving an increased likelihood of high-intensity heavy rains and short-duration flood events. As a result, there are higher associated flood-related losses.

This year heavy rains have triggered floods that inundated cities in China and South Korea and disrupted water and electricity supply in India, while drought has put farmers’ harvests at risk across Europe.
