The extent of EQC liability for damage from sea-level rise

This paper considers the extent to which damage associated with sea-level rise is covered by insurance administered by the Earthquake Commission (EQC). EQC provides a natural disaster insurance scheme to help households recover from disaster and manage the fiscal risk to the Crown from natural hazards. While sea-level rise is not an insurable event, it will substantially increase damage from storms, flooding and landslips, which is covered by EQC.
