Climate Change and Risk Management

Carrie Muehling

Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Commissioner Rostin Behnam spoke at the 2020 Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau Annual Meeting about the impact of weather and climate change on risk management and an initiative he is spearheading at the Commission.

“In my view, it’s critical to have private sector and public sector participants, a public-private partnership, contributing to this evolving, but critical conversation,” said Behnam. “Further, we cannot rest while waiting for the perfect. Action is required now, and every step – however big or small – is a positive step towards addressing these risks.”
