RMA RELEASES STUDY OF CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS ON CROP INSURANCE
WASHINGTON, DC, Jun 20, 2011 - RMA has released Climate Change Impacts on Crop Insurance,
a study completed in May 2010.
This report was recommended by the General Accounting Office in its 2007 report, "Climate Change Financial Risks to Federal
and Private Insurers in Coming Decades Are Potentially Significant." The GAO recommended that RMA and the Federal Emergency Management
Agency's National Flood Insurance Program separately analyze their Agency's potential long-term fiscal implications of climate change
and report their findings to Congress.
