Climate & Environmental Sustainability 2018 Call for Essays

The Society of Actuaries (SOA) Climate & Environmental Sustainability Research Committee is pleased to present this essay collection, which focuses on unknown knowns: where we have data but the future looks different from the past. The authors identify data sets or historical patterns of experience that are not predictive because something has changed, such as a slow trend or a discontinuity. Recognition of this shortcoming is the first step to publicize the issue and update to more realistic assumptions.
