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.
