Coastal insurance: The cause and effects of rising rates

Norfolk-based Wetlands Watch spent the last year on a street-level study of private homeowner's insurance, focusing on how increasing rates and changes in coverage might affect shoreline communities. Join us as co-author Skip Stiles explores the study's often surprising findings about the links between private insurance, climate change, and rising sea level, and discusses how changes coming to the federal National Flood Insurance Program will further impact the cost and patterns of coastal living. Stiles' presentation is the first of what the study has called for: coastal conversations on where we are headed and what we should do about it.

Stiles' presentation is the August installment of the 2013 After Hours Lecture Series at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

Reservations to this free public lecture series are required due to limited space.
