The AIDA Climate Change Working Party was formed in 2011 following the success of the "Climate Change and Insurance Law" theme session conducted in Paris in May 2010 during the XIII AIDA World Congress, which resulted in the publication of a General Report prepared by Prof Marcel Fontaine. 

Since that time meetings have been held at least twice yearly with an ever-growing number of active participants from over thirty countries actively involved in the Working Party’s activities.

In November 2016 the Working Party changed its name to the AIDA Climate and Catastrophic Events Working Party (the “CCEWP”) better to reflect what has been within the WP’s scope since the outset: the legal and insurance challenges presented to the management of all forms of climatic and catastrophic event risk in an era when the impact of Climate Change is both manifesting itself and threatening to undermine or exacerbate the problems associated with the long-term provision for all risk areas.
