Insurance Models for Assessment of the Municipal Losses Due to Natural Disasters

Plamena Zlateva and Dimiter Velev
Abstract—Various insurance models for assessment of the possible possible financial losses for a municipality due to natural disasters. Risk situations which describe the possible financial losses of the monitored objects, are considered. The main components of the insurance models are discussed. The loss assessment results can support the municipal government to take more informed decisions for effective use of limited financial resources to activities in emergency situations. A concept for implementing the insurance models as a part of a Web integrated information system for risk management of natural disasters are outlined.

Index Terms—Insurance models, risk situation, loss assessment, municipal losses, natural disasters.
