Who's insuring coastal NZ and will they continue?

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:20 pm on 13 July 2021

For those living in coastal properties around New Zealand, the threat of climate change is very real.

But where is the line for insurers? And who will be providing compensation if insurers balk at the risks?

That's the question posed by Canterbury University Lecturer of Civil Systems Engineering Tom Logan in a piece for The Conversation. He talks to Jesse about the issues he's raised.
